A cold day and this dish took me straight back to my home from 40 yrs ago. I am pretty sure mum use to make this as she cooked Indonesian dishes over the years.
As the lovely spices were added to the pot it brought comfort food to a new level, the aromas, the taste just divine. I found the spice paste in a Asian supermarket and all you add is chicken, coconut milk and water. So easy as it’s just boiled chicken then low simmer with spice paste and coconut milk. I served mine w basmati rice but it truely didn’t need it. I used a powdered coconut milk sachet which didn’t mix properly but it was still a great dish.
2nd time I made this no lumps as I used raw c coconut milk
Indonesian Feast with Sate Chicken, Kuah Sate Sauce, Sambal Olek (hot chili), Selada Indonesian, Nasi Goreng (fried rice), Red peanuts, bakwan sayur ( vegetable fritters). Chicken sate skewers were cooked on electric BBQ. (Chicken seasoned with black pepper and sea-salt then basted during cooking on both sides with sesame oil and kepjap manis). Bakwan sayur recipe was from Pinterest.
Sate is common in Indonesia but is poured after the sate has been arranged on a dish or is served in individual small bowls , one for each person who then dips the skewer of sate in the bowl before eating it. This is my adapted version of the Kuah Sate #2 Spiced Peanut Sauce (*it is not the original recipe so I have adapted it to what I had available which is very close to original)
Indonesian Salad comes in various dishes but this one is my adapted one from a traditional salad from a traditional Indonesian cookbook with ingredients I had available at the time. As the original recipe is subject to copyright I cant post it. Here is my version of the recipe as I swapped out the potato for cauliflower, coconut milk with desiccated coconut and coconut water. I didn’t add the cooked egg omelette strips.
