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.

This satay lilit is commonly found when you visited Bali. And it served with fragrant and refreshing Sambal matah, recipe below.
Sambal matah is Balinese style raw sambal. With sharp lemongrass and kaffir leaves flavor distinguish this sambal from other Indonesian sambal types we have. And this sambal matah always serve with almost everything in Balinese cooking. 

So if you are ready to travel with your taste to Indonesia.... you should start gathering some spice and some friends to "travel" with you 😊
