Before our trip to Indonesia, i promised to my self to start more cooking Indonesian food ( usually got Indonesian food from catering service), so i brought a couple of traditional Indonesian cooking books and traditional snacks books, and i started to buy some more ingredients for cooking, such as tumeric, coriander leaves, nutmeg, galagal etc, because i know I'll need lots of those ingredients if i cook Indonesian food (that's why im so lazy to start collecting them earlier).
Lucky that my hubby like most Indonesian food, sometimes a bit hot and spicy too, but he doesn't mind, like this dish, i can always put more chillies for build up the hot taste. Next time i will cook a bit more special food, because this dish is easy and quick to make. Just looking at this pictures, i already feel hungry... enjoy! BTW I'll still post some of western food too, don't worry be happy.
