Selangor state of Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ is with lots of Javenese migrants đŸ‡źđŸ‡©đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź since early 1900s, hence lots of Javanese cultures are being influenced to the local Malaysians đŸ‡ČđŸ‡ŸđŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Approximately 4K villagers đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« in Kampung Parit 2 & consists of Javanese (@ paddy field), Banjarese (@ coastal area) & Malays (In between paddy field & coastal area). The other villages are Kampung Sg Nipah, Kampung Sg Limau & Kampung Parit 4

This sambal is originated asÂ đŸ‡źđŸ‡© Javanese’s spicy đŸ„”đŸŒ¶ sauce with the amount of chillies đŸŒ¶đŸŒ¶ used & generally cooked with anchovies, clams, cow skin or cow inner parts etc.

It aims to keep for consumption of almost a year (ie. Tahun means year in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿs national language)
