Sayur lodeh is an Indonesian vegetable dish, that's somewhere inbetween a curry
and a soup
. Like any sayur
it's served as part of a meal, with rice and usually a curry or other meat dish. It's also good as part of a rijsttafel
For one serving, you need:
Cut all the vegetables into bitesize pieces - not too small or they will get soggy
. Cut the chili peppers in half, remove the seeds, and cut them into small pieces. Cut the peteh beans into small strips.
Bring 300 ml of water to a boil. Crush the kemiri and make them into a paste together with the onion, garlic and laos. Add the mixture to the water, as well as the salam and the peteh beans. Cook for about five minutes. Then add the beans and santen. When the beans are halfway cooked, add the rest of the vegetables and cook for another ten minutes. Add salt to taste.
