It's a substance made of chili peppers and other ingredients (onions, garlic, kecap manis, depending on what sambal you make), there's a whole range of different sambals and it's mostly used to spice up the food a little. You can put it on your food directly (mostly in very small amounts) or use it to cook with. It's like chili sauce, but less sauce like, more a condiment, like chutney.

Only new to Indonesian, so not confident this is worth reporting. Should the following be a correct alrernative? aku mau minta sambal itu

Correct, but not likely to be used unless you want a specific one from a range off sambal.
