Ubud is often regarded as Bali’s cultural and artistic capital. What seems to most outsiders like one small town, Ubud actually consists of fourteen villages, each run by its own banjar, or village committee. Throughout Ubud are some remarkable places to eat, drink, learn and explore, all amongst a general feeling of peace and well-being.

  • What is one thing that unites Indonesia's diverse cuisines? Sambal. Have you ever wondered how many types there are? Researchers from Gadjah Mada University recently listed 322 different recipes. Fanning the flames of the Ubud Food Festival's love of all things spicy, welcome to the weekly #UFF19 Sambal Series featuring our favorite types of sambal from across the archipelago. This week we sample sambal seruit from Lampung, South Sumatra.

__

The province of Lampung is on the southern tip of Sumatra, and as the gateway to the island from Java it is home many ethnic groups. Sambal seruit is derived from the word 'nyeruit', which means 'together'. This describes both the balance of different ingredients, and the importance of togetherness and harmony in a multi-ethnic society. Sambal seruit is often enjoyed at large community events and ceremonies with grilled freshwater fish – this tradition is called 'nyeruit'. The sambal contains interesting ingredients, such as white mango (mangga wani) and sometimes fermented durian (tempoyak). Tempted to try making it yourself? Head to the Blog section of our website for the recipe!

Fanning the flames of the Ubud Food Festival's love of all things spicy, welcome to our #UFF19 Sambal Series featuring our favorite types of sambal from across the archipelago. First up is sambal andaliman from North Sumatra. 
_

Sambal andaliman originates from the Tapanuli Regency of North Sumatra, where the andaliman pepper plant (Zanthoxylum acanthopodium) grows natively. It is closely related to Sichuan pepper (Z. piperitum), but has distinctive citrus notes, somewhat similar to lemongrass. Both peppers share the same fizzing, numbing effect on one's lips and tongue.
