This "sambal" sounds something we had with dry dishes, for instance kofta meat balls with lentils and plain rice. Our cook called the tomatoe dish sounds like "burtha". Is this the same thing or do you have a recipe for "burtha"? Our cook would own a restaurants in England and be a millionaire! I have never tasted such delicious food before or since!

I hope that your recipes are like his, I am a bit old to try them out but I will give it a try, many thanks for this site.
