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.
