Petis is a shrimp paste that is mix with dried coconut skin sugar (gula batok). It looks very.. hmm.. unappealing, but the taste is quite delightful. The taste and tecture is almost like caramel. There is 2 kind of petis, Petis Jawa (Javanese Petis) which is black and sweet, and Petis Madura (Maduranese Petis) which is brown and savory. To make it into sambal, well, of course by mixing it with chili(es) 😀
