Sambal Bu Romy is actually a joke I made. There’s this famous rumah makan (restaurant) in Surabaya, East Java with the name Rumah Makan Ibu Rudy. This restaurant has a particular dish as their speciality. The dish is called Nasi Udang Sambal Bu Rudy. Nasi means rice, udang means shrimp (in this case a very tiny winy ones), sambal means Indonesian hot chili paste (well I’m sure you all know what this is), Bu means madam or missus. So yes it’s a rice dish with fried shrimp and hot sambal ala Mrs. Rudy.
To tell you the truth I only had it once, my dear friend Mbak Rachmah took me there when I was in Surabaya last year. But one would never forget the hotness of the sambal once one tried it. Well that if you are a fan of sambal. And I am a fan so when other food blogger friends were talking about Sambal Bu Rudy recipes that’s going around. I was more than ready to make it myself. And since the sambal is made here I named it Sambal Bu Romy. Because yeah Romy the cat is the Mrs. of this house.
But besides sambal and shrimp, the dish has other condiments to complete it. They are serundeng (spiced dried shredded coconut) and kremesan (spiced crumbs, it is actually leftover from flour batter of the crispy shrimp)
So are you ready to be on fire, literally? If yes, let get cracking and make this in your own kitchen. If not then just enjoy the photos! Have a Great Friday!
The dish with the crispy shrimp.
Left, serundeng. Right, kremesan.
I made this quite a while ago, so right now I am drooling over this!
Do serve it with fresh condiments such as cucumber and tomatoes.
