Sambal is to Indonesian cuisine what salsa is to Mexican cooking: a fiery-hot condiment served at every meal.

In a blender or food processor, combine chiles, garlic, onion, sugar, lemon juice, water and salt; whirl until onions are finely minced.

Pour mixture into a 1 to 2 quart pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about ½ cup (about 10 minutes). Serve at room temperature.
