Sambal Kangkong is one of our favourite recipes from Singapore. Even there is a similar dish popular in Sri Lanka as a Chinese dish. When I cook this at home, sometimes I use store bought sambal chili paste. Then preparation of this dish is really easy. Anyway, preparing the spice paste is not much difficult.So I am going to share the recipe with how to prepare the spice paste at home for this Kang kong dish.
