Ulam with Coconut Sambal

'Ulam' means raw vegetables and it's popular among Malays, there are so many types of ulam and to be honest I am not that familiar with it. But this is some of the vegetables that my mother use to serve while we were young. It's either served with sambal belacan (see my previous post) or with coconut sambal. I prefer top eat it with this.. its spicy, savory and with the flavor of coconut... hmmm.. Really yummy!!

1 cup freshly grated coconut
1 red chili
3 Birdseye chili - (depending on your taste)
1 small onion
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp roasted belacan (shrimp paste)
salt to taste

Raw vegetables: lettuce, cucumber, mint leaves, cashew nuts shoot etc

1. Add red, birdseye chili, belacan, onion and salt into chopper and blend it well
2. Combine the grated coconut and lime juice and blend again.
3. Removed and served with ulam
