A sambal (sahm-buhl) is a pungent dish native to South India but served all over South East Asia as a relish or side dish.

In South India, it almost always contains coconut in some form, the other ingredients being any vegetables or fruit, seafood or poultry. In South East Asia, a sambal, although normally served as a relish, can sometimes be much more substantial.

The one thing common to all sambals, cooked or uncooked, is that they are fiery hot.
