The variations are endless
Delightful Indonesian food
Some of the dishes are pretty unknown for many people outside Indonesia. I think they’re worth of try because they are all delicious.
Some of the dishes are very popular in Europe and USA such as Nasi Goreng (Fried Rice) or Mie goreng (Fried Noodles).
And meat dishes like Rendang (meat cooked in coconut milk) and Babi Panggang (grilled pork meat) is the favorite for people from Europe.
You can make dishes from so many plants that grow in Indonesia.
Cassava leaves are also delicious, or papaya leaves are excellent choice to make a pepes dish. Pepes is a steam mixture of leaves or meat or fish with herbs and spices.
It’s pretty interesting actually that we use almost everything surround us to make dishes. They're cheap but healthy. Like Kangkung leaves grow in almost every place in Indonesia, but in Europe Kangkung leaves are pretty expensive. And cassava leaves grows everywhere as also papaya leaves. Sometimes you don’t even have to buy it.
There are also countless fruits that Indonesia has to offer. Because of that, there are so many variations of desserts that you can make with these exotic fruits. They are all delicious.
The most Indonesian dishes can preserve many days if you keep them in the fridge, also like rawon, soto ayam, and every dishes that is not contain vegetable can be stock in frozen for many months.
Stock them in little feed box in frozen, it is very convenient if you nothing to have in the house and don’t have time to cook, just do the little box of the frozen and warm them up. In no time you have a good meal, just add some vegetables and warm rice and you’re ready.
