If that’s all you’re able to find – well, you gotta make do with what you have…

I’ve read that Sambal Oelek is good for adding spice without impacting the actual flavor of a dish, so it could be a decent substitute. I would be careful with the amount of salt you add to the dish since the Sambal Oelek already has salt in it.

If you choose to use the Sambal Oelek, let me (and other readers) know how it works. It’s always good to know about subs for whenever real ingredients aren’t available!
