i am taking part in a recipe swap.
and because i love cooking and baking
it wasn't easy to choose a recipe.
in the end i settled for
one of my favourite indonesian dishes.
it consistes of a spicy nut sauce over raw and/or cooked veggies
and can be served with rice and tofu and tempe.
here's what you need for the nut sauce:
the basic ingredients are:
1 cup of nuts (i used almond and hazelnut. experiment with cashew and brasil nut too)
or 100g of nut butter
1-2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup palm sugar (or raw sugar)
1 tbs soya sauce
salt & pepper to taste
fresh coconut or coconut milk
fresh ginger and turmeric
place all the ingredients in a blender and add enough water to turn it into a thick sauce…
this sauce tastes great with a selection of raw and cooked vegetables…
serve with rice and fried tofu and tempe
and don't forget to sprinkle with
lots of lime juice…
