I’m sure you’re well aware of Indonesia, and a few of you probably believe that Bali is a separate country from Indonesia. Perhaps it was the richness of Indonesian culture that influenced us (or at least some of us) to hold that view. Even if you are working with professional forex brokers in Indonesia, you can still take some time to discover Indonesia. There are various ways to discover Indonesia, and if you only have a limited amount of time to visit, you can do that by sampling our cuisine! Food, as you may be aware, talks for itself. So here I am to propose to you the top four (out of an infinite number) Indonesian dishes that you must taste. Of course, you must travel to the nation especially with your mom on a mother’s day after sampling the cuisine!
- Ikan Bakar
I still can’t get over how amazing ikan bakar is after eating it hundreds of times. Ikan bakar is one of my favourite foods all across the world, but it’s particularly delicious in Indonesia. What I appreciate about ikan bakar, like many other grilled items in Indonesian cuisine, is that it’s grilled over a really hot charcoal flame and rapidly, giving it an amazing flame-grilled fire flavour. There are many various forms of ikan bakar, but the fish is usually butterfly cut to lay flat, then rubbed with a sambal sauce marinade before being grilled.
- Nasi Goreng
It may appear easy, but it is far from boring. Rice holds a significant place in the heart of all Indonesians; they revere it and can’t imagine a world without it. Nasi Goreng is a dish consisting of rice, veggies, spices, and eggs with chunks of meat (usually chicken and/or seafood). In most cases, shallots, garlic, shrimp paste, some chile, and tamarind will be present. The rice in nasi goreng is pre-cooked, and several homes make the meal with leftover rice in previous days. Nasi goreng will be prepared to order at eateries and street sellers. You can select the type of meat (or none) and the level of spiciness.
Rendang is a traditional Indonesian beef dish from the Minangkabau region of West Sumatra. It’s a curry-like dish that’s thought to be inspired by north Indian curries. Rendang is a traditional Indonesian dish that is frequently served at marriages and birthdays. It’s traditionally cooked with beef, although other animal proteins such as mutton, duck and chicken. The meat is slow-cooked in coconut milk plus spices for a few hours until it is tender.
Satay is usually made up of skewered meat that is roasted over coals. To burn up the smoke, hot fans are utilised, giving them a truly unique flavour. Goat, chicken or mutton skewers are commonly served with a peanut sauce and ketupat. Before cooking, the meat is usually marinated in various seasonings. You may find this delicious delicacy pretty much anyplace in Indonesia, and once you try it, you’ll be pleased you did. In Jakarta, Jalan Sabang is a culinary hotspot where you can sample some of the best Javanese satays.
