This Javanese dish, eaten with slight variations throughout much of Indonesia, consists of blanched mixed vegetables tossed with an exquisite dressing that includes lime juice, coconut, and red bell pepper. It is an inspired mixture. The main ingredient here is cauliflower, but it could equally well be greens of various sorts, long beans, or bean sprouts.
You may serve the dish hot, at room temperature, or cold, though I feel that it is best to mix the dressing in while the vegetables are still hot.Ingredients:
1 pound cauliflower floretsInstructions:
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
1 large, or 2 small carrots
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
A red bell pepper
1 garlic clove
2 ounces (I 1 1/4 cups) finely grated fresh coconut
4 teaspoons lime orlemon juice
Nasi Goreng Istimewa
This tempting fried rice can be a meal in itself if it is served with Shrimp Wafers (page 40) and either of the red bell pepper sauces (page 219).
In Indonesia hot chilies and cucumbers — cut to resemble tropical flora — decorate the rice plate like bunting, along with Egg Strips (page 223). You may prefer a simpler garnish of finely sliced scallion, and/or chopped hard-cooked eggs, and cucumber slices.
It is a good idea to cook the rice well ahead, so it has time to cool off completely before it is stir-fried. For optimum flavor, the rice should be stir-fried with all the other ingredients just before eating.Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups long-grain riceInstructions:
1 red bell pepper
1 shallot, or 1/2 small onion
1 teaspoon shrimp or anchovy paste
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
4 ounces lean beef steak
4 medium shrimp
2 cabbage leaves
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
