This is a recipe for Indonesian Gado-gado from Mariska, filmed in Jakarta as part of my Gapshida project. There are all kinds of Korean food fans there! Enjoy!

(for 2 servings)
1 thinly sliced medium sized fresh cucumber, 2 fried tempeh (soybean patties), 2 pieces of fried tofu, and a hard boiled egg cut into 4 pieces.

For blanched vegetables:
1 cup of string beans cut into 4 cm long pieces, 1 cup of shredded cabbage, 1 cup of mung bean sprouts, 2 small chayotes cut into wedges (2 cups' worth), 1 cup of water spinach ("ong choy"), 1 cup of Chinese spinach

For the sauce:
ground roasted peanuts, bird's eye chilis, dried shrimp paste (terasi), palm sugar, salt, tamarind, and water

For garnish:
fried shallots, shrimp crackers, emping (gnetum gnemon chips called "Melinjo" in Indonesian)

1 medium sized steamed potato cut into bite size pieces

1. Blanch and strain Chinese spinach, water spinach, string beans, mung bean sprouts, cabbage and slice 1 cucumber.

Make sauce using a mortar and pestle
(cooking time: 20-30 minutes)

1. Grind these ingredients with a mortar and pestle until they're smooth: 1 ts salt, 2 ts dried shrimp paste, 3 red bird's eye chilis, and ¼ cup's worth of palm sugar.
2. Add 1 cup of finely ground roasted peanuts (or 1 cup of peanut butter) and grind it all some more until it's mixed well. If you use peanut butter instead of ground roasted peanuts, add less salt because there's salt in the peanut butter.
3. Mix 1 tbs (about 20 grams) of tamarind with ¼ cup of hot water in a small bowl. Add the juice to the sauce.
4. Add ½ cup of water and mix it well.
5. Transfer the vegetables to a serving plate and pour the sauce on top of it or mix all the vegetables with the sauce in the mortar before serving.
6. Add a sliced hard-boiled egg on top and garnish with fried shallots, shrimp crackers and emping.
7. Serve with steamed rice.

Or make sauce using a food processor
(cooking time: 15-20 minutes)

1. Grind 1 ts salt, 2 ts dried shrimp paste, 3 red bird's eye chilis, and ¼ cup's worth of palm sugar in a food processor until smooth.
2. In a bowl, mix the blanched vegetables with the sauce. Transfer to a serving plate.
3. Garnish with fried shallots, shrimp crackers, and emping.
4. Serve with steamed rice.

Okta Rose Yes, that's true! A part of Surinamese people are called 'Javanese' in our country. Because they are from Indonesia and Java. I really love their food. I live in a area with predominantly Asian people, so I'm brought up with it😊😊😊

+Maangchi next time you come to Indonesia, try ketoprak, karedok, siomay, batagor, rujak penganten. All of them are using peanut sauce. Peanut sauce is like Indonesian's gochujang, we use it in many dishes. And by the way, rujak penganten can be translated into bride's salad, because traditionaly brides are "selling" rujak penganten to their guests on the wedding day. It's kind of wishing happines for the brides. Interesting right? I love it very much, so delicious! Please try it.
