Here is my version of the most popular Indonesian snack. Serve it hot and make extra. With this recipe, you always want more!
On a recent trip to Bali, my Balinese stepmother let me help her prepare chicken - and I furiously committed her 'non-recipe' to memory to bring home. She has a big mortar and pestle for this kind of thing; I don't, so I end up using both sides of my meat mallet; you just want to get the ingredients well combined and at least somewhat reduced in mass. And since they're baked, not deep-fried, they're a (relatively) healthy pile of wings! I particularly like them with roasted sweet potatoes.
Nasi goreng is Indonesia's national dish - a delicious stir fry of vegetables, prawns, rice and eggs in a flavorful sauce.
This fried rice is like Nasi Goreng, Indonesian fried rice. This dish can be enjoyed by itself or as the basis of a larger meal. It is very easy to make.
This popular Indonesian spicy noodle soup has a lot of ingredients and a bit of prep but it comes together very easily. So good.
There are lots of condiments served with Indonesian dishes and a common one is sambal, this is an easy recipe for one using chilli and shallots.
Coming from Indonesia this is one of my standby recipes to make when vegetarian friends come around. It is packed with essentials like protein.
I was taught this recipe by Aminah, my good friend Adi's mom, who is an excellent cook from Bali. This satay is so good!
An Indonesian method of preparing fresh prawns - stir fried with bok choy, chilli sauce (sambal) garlic and chillies. If you like assertive flavours you'll love this one!
This stir fry included peanut butter for an Indonesian satay flavour. It's delicious served with rice or flatbread.
