Banana Fritter served with Sambal Roa
Lazy morning... woke up late, no special plan for that day.
After got back from the market, while waiting for my husband and son returning from the car workshop, I was thinking it would be good to have something to enjoy for morning snack.
Ah.. .then I remembered somethings that make my eyes open bigger, my heart jumps faster and put a big smile in my face...
I remembered about a jar of 'Sambal Roa' still sitting down nicely in our fridge (brought by a friend of my husband from Manado, North Sulawesi), I remembered that many times I heard, I read, I watched how people in Manado enjoy the banana fritters with Sambal Roa, and I remembered I still keep the recipe pamphlet of 'Pisang Goreng Manado' that is served with Sambal Roa in my recipe box. Perfect!! My smile was getting bigger.
This is the perfect time to try this famous unusual combination.
With the simple 0ne-two-three steps, the snack was ready on the table. Warm, delicious, unique... clever combination.
For you who have no idea what Sambal Roa is, let me explain;
Sambal is a chili based sauce which is normally used as a condiment. Ikan Roa (Roa Fish) is smoked fish that is made from ikan terbang/garfish which can be found only in North Sulawesi water. So, this famous Sambal Roa is a chili based sauce that made by stir fry the chillies, tomatos, garlic, salt, pepper and Ikan Roa. Sound delicious, right! Chilli Sauce with the smoky fish flavour. Yum!
