    How to Cook dishes from Indonesia

    Indonesia Indonesia is a country that contains 6,000 islands and many diverse peoples. The country has many cultural links to China, India and the Middle East. It is also home to many spices - indeed the Indonesian island of Maluku is sometimes known as "the Spice Island".

    Most of Indonesia was colonized by the Dutch, who stayed in the area for over 250 years. The region also had extensive contacts with Spanish and Portuguese traders, who left their mark on the region's culture, and also were responsibvle for introducing many crops from the New World.

    Indonesian cuisine reflects the history of the country and its people. There are dishes unique to the Indonesia, some of which have become popular throughout Asia, and you can also find dishes influenced by Chinese cuisine, Dutch cuisine, Indian cuisine, Malaysian cuisine, Portuguese cuisine, and Spanish cuisine.

    Some popular Indonesian recipes and dishes include:
    • Bakso Solo - Beef meatballs in a hot and spicy soup containing green vegetables, mung bean thread noodles, and shredded cabbage.

    • Gudeg Yogya - A sweet stew made from young jackfruit and hard-boiled egg.

    • Ketupat - A rice dumpling made by wrapping rice in a palm leaf pouch and boiling. The cooking process compresses the rice as it expands, producing a kind of rice dumpling. Ketupat are sometimes boiled in thin coconut milk and spices.

    • Lumpia Semarang - Springrolls, fried or steam. They usually contain meat and bamboo shoots, and served with fermented soybean sauce.

    • Nasi goreng - This is a fried rice meal. It usually contains vegetables (particularly onion and shallot), egg and prawns, and is flavored with chilli, garlic, soy sauce, and tamarind. Indonesians often make the dish from leftovers, and often eat it for breakfast.

      Nasi goreng

    • Rendang - Beef cooked slowly with coconut milk and spices for several hours. During the cooking process, the meat absorbs spices, the liquid evaporates, and the cooking method gradually turns from boiling to frying. Sometimes the beef may be replaced with chicken, duck, mutton, turtle meat, water buffalo, or even cassava or jackfruit. Chicken and duck rendang is usually cooked for a shorter period than beef rendang, and is flavored with tamarind. In Indonesia, rendang is served with rice.

    • Sate - Diced meat (beef, chicken, fish, goat, mutton, or pork) on bamboo skewers cooked on a charcoal grill.


      There are many variations of Sate including:
      • Sate Ambal - Chicken with ground tempeh (a soybean product), chilli and spice.
      • Sate Ampet - Beef and cow offal with hot spices.
      • Sate Babi - Pork sate.
      • Sate Bandeng - Sate made from milkfish (bandeng)
      • Sate Belut - Eel sate.
      • Sate Blora - Chicken with peanut sauce. It is usually served with rice and a soup made from coconut milk and herbs.
      • Sate Bulus - Sate made from soft shell turtle (bulus). It is served with pepper, shallots and sweet soy sauce.
      • Sate Buntel - A large sate made from fatty beef or goat meat.
      • Sate Kuda - Sate made from horse mat with pepper, shallots and sweet soy sauce.
      • Sate Kulit - A crispy sate made from chicken skin.
      • Sate Lilit - This dish is popular on Bali. It is made from ground beef, chicken, fish, pork or turtle meat which is mixed with coconut and shallots and flavored with lemon juice and pepper.
      • Sate Madura - Chicken or mutton with a distinctive sweet black sauce. Thinly sliced shallot and plain sambal are typically used as condiments.
      • Sate Makassar - Beef offal marinated in a sour suace.
      • Sate Padang - Cow or goat offal which is boiled and then grilled. A yellow sauce containing turmeric and other spices is used during the grilling process.
      • Sate Ponorogo - Chicken with peanuts and chilli sauce. Eat skewer normally contains a single piece of chicken meat rather than several slices or chunks.
      • Sate Pusut - Ground beef, chicken or fish with coconut and spices.
      • Sate Susu - Spicy beef brisket, served with hot chilli sauce.
      • Sate Tegal - Goat meat. Usually four chunks of meat are used per skewer, one of which is either fat, liver or kidney. The meat is not marinated, but the dish is served sweet soya sauce, chilli, green tomatoes and rice.
      • Sate Telor Muda - Sate made from immature chicken egg (an egg removed from a slaughtered chicken before the egg had been laid).
      • Sate Torpedo - Sate made from marinated goat testicles.

    • Soto Kudus - A soup made from beef, chicken or mutton, and flavored with turmeric.

    Today, Indonesian food is well-known for its fried rice or nasi goreng; its satay, the local version of the Arab kebabs; its beef rendang, chili condiment or sambal, and tempeh or roasted soybean cakes.

    Indonesian cuisine is as varied as its culture. With the world’s fourth largest population made up of 250 ethnic groups and spread out over 6,000 populated islands, Indonesia, as can be imagined, is a land of huge diversity. The archipelago once lay along the ancient trading routes between the Middle East and the Far East, a position that opened it wide to the influences from many far-off places.

    There are many similarities between Malay food in Malaysia and Indonesian cuisine, but to the experienced palate the differences are just as noticeable. As with the rest of Southeast Asia, rice is the staple diet in Indonesia, except in Irian Jaya and Maluku where people sustain themselves with sago, which is a type of tapioca, sweet potatoes and cassava.
    Rice is usually eaten plain, combined with a meat dish, a vegetable dish, a sambal and crunchies like fried peanuts or fried anchovies. Sometimes, the rice is steamed in woven packets of coconut leaves to make what is called a ketupat; and sometimes it is steamed in banana leaves and served as lontong.

    In Indonesia, it is common for dishes to be cooked ahead of time and later eaten at room temperature. This seems to suit Indonesian families, many of whom do not have set meal-times. This practice is also common in restaurants and public eating places in Indonesia. Most Indonesian food is moderately spicy with a predominance of ginger, garlic and fresh turmeric.
