Originated from North Sumatra, this is a standard street vendors' dish in Indonesia. I found a shortcut to make this lovely dish. Serve with rice with prawn crackers on the side.
I am an Indonesian living in the US. This is my favorite dish and I am glad I found the recipe here. Thanks for sharing! - 07 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ini makan Indo asli! Real authentic cuisine and hot too in a good way. - 30 Dec 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I've lived in Indonesia a long time ago and so I wanted to recreate some dishes from there for my fiance, he LOVED this dish! He constantly asks me to make it again, I don't usually have shrimp paste where I live so I use anchovies instead (I looked it up as a substitute for shrimp paste) and it works just fine. - 13 Nov 2014 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
