Learn Indonesian ^^
Vegetables = sayur-sayuran
In = di dalam
Coconut milk = santan kelapa
This is one of the most important dish for Lontong Sayur, without this then there’s no sayur. 1 ingredient that you might never heard of before is young jack fruit. In Asia, especially Indonesia, we eat pretty much everything from this fruit. When its still young, we call it vegetable. When its ripe, we call it fruit and taste very very sweet. We can also eat the seed (which quite big), can boil them first and then you deep fry it until crispy. The skin however, can be quite nice as well. But you have to peel off the outside hard part.

Back to the dish. Now lets see the ingredients.
I have canned young jack fruit (you can get this in your local Asian shop), carrots, green bean and tempe (fermented soya cake).
Half onion, 2 banana shallots, 4 cloves garlic, 1 lemon grass, 1 bay leaf, 2 lime leaves, 2 cm galangal, 1 tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp ground coriander and 1 can coconut milk.
– Cut all the ingredients as shown in the first picture.
– Blitz onion, shallots, garlic, turmeric and coriander until smooth. Whack (pardon my language :D) lemon grass and galangal.
– In a hot pot with 1 tbsp oil, saute the paste of spices until aromatic. Add lemon grass, leaves and galangal.
– Add in coconut milk and jack fruit. Let it boil for 3 minutes then add the rest of the veggies and tempe. DON’T stir too much, you’ll break the tempe. Wait until boil and the veggies are cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.
– Serve hot.
After this I’ll only have 1 post from Eid celebration left. So, please hang in there 😀
Happy cooking! ^.^
