I have a small amount of Tempoyak fermenting in a jar on my counter (fresh durian mashed with salt and sealed in a jar). I was planning to mix it with mashed chillis to make a sambal, but I was wondering if anyone had any other uses for it? I was looking at chillis at the store today and they were all moldy, which put the breaks on my sambal ambitions for the time being and started my thinking outside-the-box.
I was wondering, what about mixing it with mango for a sort of chutney or BBQ sauce with pulled pork?
Or if I did make a sambal (eventually, when I find some good chillis), would it be cool to mix a bit of roasted shrimp paste in with the durian and chillis, or is that overkill?
Does anyone have any other uses for this jar of Tempoyak? I used very good durian for it (I just bought too much and couldn't finish it fresh, but it was good!)
