Notes

Most people think of Indonesian dishes as being fiery hot, guess what folks there is not one chili pepper in this recipe, but I always like to add a sambal (hot chili paste)like sambal oelek trasi or sambal badjak at the dinner table.

We found this recipe in "Cook Indonesian" by Agnes de Keijzer Brackman.
