Sambal Cili Limau Kasturi (Key Lime Chilli Based Sauce)

Gosh!!! I've been neglecting my blog again. I am so sorry. It's not that I do not want to update as much as I used to but I have been so busy. So many things happened over the past few weeks... Right now, I am back in Singapore. Yay!!!! I am so happy because I get to see my family and friends in Singapore. There was a little misunderstanding on my travel but I managed to get it cleared up. A shout out to my girlfriends, Thank you for your help! :))

The weather was so hot and humid when I came back. I can stand heat but the humidity is the one I can't stand. Its terrible!  One of the reason why I am back in Singapore is because of my brother's wedding. I was happy to be here for his wedding but at the same time, I wish hubby was here with me. The wedding went well and I am so happy for the newly weds. This is the part I do not like.... so since I didn't get much rest and still had the jet-lag in me, I fell sick!! Yikes!!

Then I got a part time job. I will be in Singapore for a a while so it would be good for me to work When I started the job, the company was relocating so I had to help with the move. Its been 10 days now, after the move. Things are going well. I wish they do not moved to the new location because the previous location was super close to my mum's house...

So I end this post with a simple recipe that I learnt from my mum. This sambal cili limau kasturi (Key Lime Chilli Based Sauce) is a condiment for the dish that she cooked on that day. It was super easy. At first, I thought it was really too spicy but it was not... :))

The lime used in this recipe is called calamansi lime or as the Malays in Singapore called it, limau kasturi. Key limes are different. The limau kasturi has a slightly different citrus fragrance. You can use key limes as a substitute if couldn't get it in your area. But the taste is not authentic.
