Chrouk Metae is authentic Cambodian chili paste that is similar to sambal, but with more focus on chili flavor and less on other ingredients. It has a robust flavor, clean aftertaste, delightful texture and natural deep red color.
Chrouk Metae has a good balance between spiciness and flavor and unlike other chili pastes, it contains no oil. It is traditionally served as a spicy condiment with grilled or pan-fried meats, as well as noodle dishes.
In Cambodia, Chrouk Metae means fermented chili.
