There are many different kinds of chili condiment used in Malaysian cuisine.

Fresh No-Cook Garlic Chili Sauce
This Garlic Chili Sauce is a fresh no-cook version. The ingredients are simply blended together, giving it a brighter taste and color. Some people prefer it cooked so that it has a longer shelf life. A little oil may be used during the cooking. This changes taste slightly. I personally prefer it fresh with a slight bite from the ginger and garlic.
