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.
Proper Breakfast for me.. Thanks Mush..
Pineapple and Cloves are best friends.. for preserves, I always cut the pineapple chunky , Sugar or caster Sugar (hehehe.. they both sweet anyway), Pinch of Salt (Must).. and 5 Cloves, cinnamon stick..
Bacon Butty.. I call it Full English Breakfast Sandwich.. if you get cheap tomatoes.. 50 P a bowl from the market try to make your own Tomato Sauce.. Use your imagination..
Pinch of dark brown sugar.. pinch of salt.. bit of malt vinegar.. bit of maple syrup.. and Bay leaf..
In the Javanese concept Herbal tea always shows dark colour, with Tisane bright and fresh colour is a sign of fresh flovour.
A half dried mace (Manisan Buah Pala), (chop and soaking), crush a stalk of Lemongrass, few spring Mint and Orange Zest.
It was because of The Observe Magazine that I read it at work.. never cook with lard before (honestly) and 500 gram *bloody hell* eeeeekkkkkk.. and just change thyme with lemongrass. (Did I ruin it.. I dont think so)
