Lately, it's the sweet potato season, so I can find many sweet potatoes now.  My family also send me sweet potato often. 

I think what should I do with these sweet potatoes? Then suddenly I remember when I was still in elementary school, I liked fried sweet potato wedges and dipping them with sambal matah.

Sambal matah is one of many popular raw spicy sauces in Indonesia, especially in Bali. Sambal matah bawang is the best with these sweet potato wedges.

Honestly, I don't remember the last time I tried this dish, it's been a long time, luckily I still remember the recipe, and the taste is still the same. The taste of the sambal matah is not only spicy but also sweet, perfect for those of you who don't like spicy.
