Well, after careful consideration, our content curators have garnered five points that make Indonesian food unique & the best in class. Each point is coming from the expert chefs working with our Bali cooking class – have a quick read to know Balinese & Indonesian food better –
- Indonesian food tastes more or less like a beautiful blend of Indian and Thai cuisine. It’s original flavors ooze the bold use of spices, just like Indian food while the presence of coconut broth make it resemble a lot to Thai awesomeness.
- Indonesian curries are always flavor-loaded, brimming with the freshness of herbs and loads of spices. These contribute in giving a unique taste to Indonesian food.
- Unlike the rest of the world, rice is deemed to be a primary part of Indonesian food.
- Indonesian dishes are considered ‘complete’ and ‘perfect’ when the eggs served along the main dishes are fully-cooked. Runny fried eggs are so not acceptable.
- If you’re a sweet tooth, you’ll find an assortment of Indonesian goodness to devour and revel in bliss. Desserts like Pisang lawe, Bubur sumsum, Klepon (sweet rice balls), daluman (chlorophyll jelly) and more are worth to die for.
