Selam everybody...... Merhaba from Türkiye.

Pickle in Indonesian cuisine is part of side dish that complement main dish or other meal. Different from other type of pickle which brine in vinegar or other solution and ferment for period of times, Indonesian pickle is quick to make and consume it freshly after made.

Many vegetable and fruit  we use for our fresh pickle e.g carrot, cucumber, bean sprout, cabbage, pineapple, shallot and more.
We also have cooked pickle and generally serve as side dish- we call it "acar kuning" or yellow cooked pickle. 

Acar Kuning / yellow pickle (cooked)
So if you want to experience Indonesian food, here are I share some fresh pickles I made. You serve some pickle with fried rice, fried noodle, and some Indonesian foods.

In Indonesia we call it "bolu marmer". Taken from Portuguese language "bolo" means cake in English.

"Marmer" is marble in English. So this is our old classic Indonesian Marble cake.

Selam Everybody...........Merhaba from Türkiye.

Sate Kambing Bumbu Kacang / Indonesian Lamb or mutton satay with peanut sauce. | Çitra's Home Diary. #lambkebab #lambsatay #muttonsatay #satayrecipe #indonesiansatay #peanutsauceforsatay #peanutrecipe #indonesianrecipe #resepsatekambing #satebumbukacang #indonesiansatayrecipe

Satay is a grilled meat dish famous throughout Southeast-Asia. Indonesians consider it a national dish conceived by street vendors. These tasty meat skewers are most popular with chicken, beef also lamb or mutton. We also have vegetarian satay version use tofu and tempeh instead of meat. 
Traditionally it served with white steamed rice or cake rice (Ind; ketupat and lontong). 

And generally it served with fresh cucumber pickle as well. Some area (like Madura island) serve together with bone soup or in middle Java serve this satay with gulai tongseng.

So if you want this satay in quick, you should prepare your white rice or cake rice in advance. Also you need to make peanut sauce and fresh pickled cucumber in ahead.

In Indonesia it self there are many types of satay from various regions and of various ingredients. For example, from Padang city (Sumatra), I like satay Padang. There are also "sate kelapa" (beef satay wrapped with grated coconut-My best favorite)-it's mostly common from Madura Island, quail eggs satay, clam satay, 'tempeh' and tofu satay or mushroom satay for vegetarian option.
And there are dozens of other types of satay (which is nearly I have eaten already).

What is macarons?
Macarons, a sweet treat meringue-based confection made of egg white, sugar, icing sugar, almond powder, and sometimes food coloring is added. 
The confection is characterized by smooth, squared top, ruffled circumference (referred to as the "foot" or "pied"), and a flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth. Macarons can be found in a wide variety of flavors that range from the traditional (raspberry, chocolate) to the new (foie gras or matcha).


No knead Ramazan Pidesi / Turkish Ramadan Pide (flat bread) with step by step pictures. Best and authentic recipe.

Selam everybody...........Merhaba from Türkiye

Bread or ekmek we call in Turkish language is staple of all food in Türkey as well very much important in Turkish culture.  Not just bread, we treat our food with respect. Wasting foods (bread) is disrespectful and günah or sin.

Eat and finish what you take.

Bread is always on our dinner table. Serve morning to evening. Dip in a hot creamy soup, eaten with Turkish köfte (meatball) in between or any meal. Or just simply spread with salça (homemade tomato paste) for hurry brunch.

You can find a dozen types of ekmek/ bread in market or local fırın (bakery) which always serve fresh and hot bread from a traditional big stone oven. And there is one bread that special baked at a special occasion, Ramadhan or Ramazanİt's Ramazan pidesi.

No knead Ramazan Pidesi / Turkish Pide bread (flat bread) with step by step pictures| Çitra's Home Diary

There are many classic dishes that are associated with Ramazan in Turkey. But no other item signifies the breaking of the fast better than a loaf of pide (read; pee-deh).
Ramazan pidesi, it's round and rather flat in form, and having a weave-like patterned crust shape by fingers.
Ramazan pidesi is made of wheat flour with yeast, rub with egg wash and topped with sesame and black sesame seed.

It is traditionally served for the iftar and sahur meals during the holy month of Ramadan
is highlight bread in turkey during Ramadhan month.

Bakeries all over Turkey provide this Ramazan pidesi hot and fresh about an hour or two before iftar time. So you will see a long queue in front of fırın/ bakery before iftar time to get this delicious pide hot from oven during the month of Ramadhan.
