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

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

Pour mixture into 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. Makes about ½ cup.
