Today's post might be a bit longer than usual. Cause I will tell you a little more about Indonesian cuisines- my beloved country 💓

Last Friday I was lucky enough to be a guest cook for Beyond Kitchen by young chef and gastronomy - Mohammad Alard. We cooked and served some Indonesian menus for our expat fellows in Istanbul.

Beside cooking, I also presented and tell to the guests about the dishes they enjoyed that night. And I am going to share to you as well 😊

Well, where can I begin?
Indonesian has the most unique cuisine in the world due to the combination of cultural diversity and its geography.
Most Indonesian food is prepared with contrasting flavors, such as a spicy-sweet or hot sauce served over a bed of plain white rice, a popular meal throughout the country.

We serve simple foods in general, but using plenty of herbs, various roots, spices, leaves and grasses adds zest to most of our meals. Some of you may think that Indonesian foods are spicy and hot because we use chili pepper on mostly every dish. But it's not really true. In fact, the most widely used spices are cumin (caraway), coriander, and ginger. All relatively mild spices and give such a mild aromatic dishes.

Some other countries have bread as a staple food. In Indonesia, rice is the most important staple food. We eat it for breakfast until dinner. İt normally accompanies every meal too. For daily consume we eat steamed white rice. Even you may find some other type of rice such as white Glutinous rice and black glutinous rice. But those glutinous rice usually being used for our snack (jajan) , cakes or on sweet treats. check Indonesian food category  and Indonesian snack (kue) for more.

But rice is not the only staple for All Indonesian. In eastern Indonesia, like Maluku, we can find sago as their staple food. And some other regions people eat cassava and corn as main staple. 

The most common method for preparing food is frying, sautéing, and steaming. Although of course grilling, simmering, roasting, and even baking are also popular. 

Besides famous with a variety of spices and herb, using coconut is commonly find in mostly Indonesian foods. We use coconut start from its flesh, its water, coconut milk, until its leaves. Coconut used in main dishes, side dish until sweet treat.

Hello everyone.....
Merhaba from Türkiye 👋

I am pretty sure that you’ve heard of Indonesia or maybe some of you think that Bali is somewhere near Indonesia and thought that it is a country of its own. Maybe it was all because the diversity of Indonesian culture that made us (or some of us) think that way. 
Well, for you who didn't know yet, Bali is one of Indonesian islands among more than 17.000 others.

There are so many ways to explore Indonesia and if you have little time to actually travel to the beautiful Indonesia, you can do it by tasting our FOOD! 😊

Indonesian cuisine often demonstrates complex flavor, acquired from certain ingredients and bumbu spices mixture. Indonesian dishes have rich flavors; most often described as gurih (savory which equate to umami) and pedas (hot and spicy), and also a combination of basic tastes such as manis (sweet), asin (salty), asam (sour) and pahit (bitter). 

Seven main Indonesian cooking methods are goreng (frying), bakar (roasting) or panggang (grilling), tumis (sautéing), sangrai (roasted), rebus (boiling) and kukus (steaming).
Talking about how rich İndonesian food is... today İ'll share you one of İndonesian favorite; Sate Lilit Bali. It's one of famous food from Bali island, beside Balinese grilled fish ( ikan bakar) or urap sayur and ayam pelalah (spicy shredded chicken).

The various spices used to make this meal so rich and umami. The herbs and fresh vegetables added also enrich and distinguish this dish from other places in Indonesia.

Köfte (or kofta) is a family of meatball or meatloaf dishes found in the Indian subcontinent, South Caucasian, Middle Eastern, Balkan, and Central Asian cuisines. In the simplest form, koftas consist of balls of minced or ground meat—usually beef, chicken or lamb—mixed with spices and/or onions.

In Turkey, köfte is one of traditional staple. There are hundreds of different varieties and vary greatly in size and shape. 
Some are long and thin- we call it parmak köfte, typical to İnegöl Köfte. 
Others are balls, and others are patty shaped typical to kasap köfte or Pideli köfte. 

You can check my previous köfte recipe like İzmir köftesi origin from İzmir city (see recipe here) .
Or when you visit Bursa you should try Pideli Köfte, it's a small flat patty shape meatball served over pide flat bread flush with yummy tomato sauce then "fizz" with hot melted butter. You can check how to make it home here
There is another köfte from İnegöl town named İnegöl Köfte. Each köfte (meatball) has own typical.

Köfte variant also can be determined  base on meat used. It can be made from beef, lamb, or a combination of the two. Sometimes chicken or turkey (in Turkish language we call it "hindi tavuk" 😊)
