The Food Of Hell From Indonesia

Famous as one of the best tropical countries, Indonesia provides tons of uniqueness and excitement. Its nature, culture, and art always bring millions of tourist each year. However, this time we are going to talk about one thing, Indonesia’s cuisine, in particular Sambal.
Sambal or sambel is infamous among tourist as the food of hell for its undeniable ability to make the consumer produces tears and sweat when eating. Produced using chili as its main ingredient, sambal is indeed taste extremely spicy.
Sambal is made by grinding ‘cabai’ or chili, along with several complements such as onion, cherry,  tomato, ‘terasi’, sugar, and salt. The ingredients are grinded using traditional tool made usually from wood or plastic. The texture is smooth with a vibrant color of green and red, depending on which chili you use.
Infamous among tourists for its spiciness, many tourists avoid it. However, some of them are challenged and try to eat it. Those who dare to try usually will get stomach ache or turn very red and sweaty in the face. Though super spicy, locals eat it in almost daily basis as their main meal.

·         The information above isn’t  all correct. There are some informations, which is need to be corrected.

1.      In the text, it is mentioned that, “...ingredients are grinded using traditional tool made usually from wood or plastic.”
Actually, for the traditional tools that usually be used for making sambal, is made from wood, stone, ceramic, or metal. So, it is not made by plastic.
2.      In the text also mentioned, “...made by grinding ‘cabai’ or chili, along with several complements such as onion, cherry,  ...”
Cherry is not the one of ingridients of sambal. Because sambal is usually made from shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, palm sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars, chili, tomato, sugar, and salt. If we added cherry, the taste will become sweet and it is not suit with the real taste of sambal.

3.      In the text also mentioned,”... locals eat it in almost daily basis as their main meal.”
It is true that locals eat sambal in almost daily basis, but not as the main meal. Sambal usually is a compliment  or hot and spicy condiments of our meals. Usually another side dish, for example, fried chicken, will be dipped to sambal, so sambal is like dipping sauce for our meals. Sambal will make our meals more delicious and sambal will add some flavours to our meals.
4.      For the using of word “infamous”, I think it is better to be changed into “famous”. The reason is although sambal is also known as “The food of hell”, but sambal is also one of Indonesia’s great culture, specifically, in cuisine. For “infamous” usually be used for describing someone or something which is famous, but have worst reputity, or we can say that it is famous in bad things. But, I think sambal is not a bad things. It is one of the uniqueness from Indonesia. Though, it can make we get stomach ache or very sweaty, but it isn’t  a  bad thing.
