Is that me, or is that the Indonesian vanilla pods that my mother sent it to me.. you need put extra vanilla pods to make sure you can taste vanilla custard. Nutmeg still in its shell so.. tangy.. bitter sweet.. Sugar?? for me less much better
Mint, Pineapple, Lime Zest, Lime and Cornish Honey (unfortunately bees already in Heaven)
Rice (cooked) , Shallot, garlic, Anchovies, Parmesan Cheese, paprika, Indonesian Black pepper.. and 4 Medium Tomatoes (remember use your imagination.. and common sense and I said medium tomatoes because fit into ramekin)
I asked my friend.. Do you know how to describe “sharp flavour” of Indonesian Black pepper..
She said.. Sharp.. as sharp as Indonesian people talked about you behind your back!! hahahhaaaaaaaa
100 gram mix nuts (roasted for 20 minutes 170 C),
75 gram caster sugar
50 gram coconut sugar.
when I call it Peanut brittle .. Ampyang ( feel that Javanese language is so basic) haaahaaa
Spekkoek spice is a blend of mace, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and Vanilla pods. If you want to make your own spice mix :
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground mace (Bunga Pala)
1 tsp. ground cardamom
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
2 vanilla pods
for me.. I just pick up the phone and ask my Mum to blend it for me (I know is far away but it is worth it ) or am I Just being Lazy 😉
Tips : use 1 tsp. of Spekkoek spice for your walnut cake.. Lovely
I Just popped in .. Love my extended Family, I have Chinese, Timorese, English, and Turkish .. I wish I have Argentinian, so I can try Proper South American Steak, wish I have South African .. so I can try Braai , I wish I have Italian.. I wish.. yeah I wish I have family from all over the world.. So I just pop in and try their food..
Burek is similar with Martabak in Indonesia, is only using feta cheese. No fuss simply food and serve with Turkish Tea.
