    1      pound         carrots

 A sambal is a favorite dish of the Cape Malays and has become popular with
 the rest of the country over time. It is a salad or condiment and is a good
 accompaniment for any fried or oily dish such as fried chicken. Scrape and
 coarsely grate the carrots. Mix them together with the salt in a large bowl
 and leave to stand at room temperature for about half an hour. Squeeze the
 carrots hard to remove any excess moisture. Combine the vinegar, chilies and
 sugar in a bowl, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Add the carrots and
 stir until thoroughly mixed. Place in a serving bowl and leave to macerate
 at room temperature for a minimum of 15 minutes before serving. This sambal
 is good with fried chicken. Contributed by allium #kitmailbox IRC Chat; 17
