World Cuisine Recipes

 

   Indonesian food is, unquestionably, some of the most delicious in the world. There isn't much subtlety about it, but what a great awakening for your taste buds! This doesn't mean that every dish is hot or pungent, but there's always a combination of sweet and sour and salty tastes; unexpectedly gentle coconut-milk sauces fragrant with lemon grass or other herbs; crisp textured accompaniments; hot sambal to be tasted in tiny quantities; all of which create an awareness that what you are eating is not just body fuel but an expression of culinary artistry.
   Indonesian recipes and cooking combines the spicy flavors of chilies, herbs and other aromatic seasonings with the sweetness of fresh coconut, palm sugar and peanuts, and the sourness of limes, lemon grass and tamarind. Meals are often served with small bowls of sambal, spicy relishes made from combinations of coconut, chili and shrimp paste.
   Sweets are mostly made from glutinous rice, but don't shrug them off with the thoughts of rice pudding - there's not the slightest resemblance. The rice might be steamed in tiny baskets woven of fresh leaves, sweetened with palm sugar, flavored with fragrant leaves and flowers; or it might be ground and cooked with coconut milk to a smooth paste, flavored and colored and poured in unbelievably fine alternate layers of white and green or pink or yellow or chocolate.
