This year, students of MA KHAS Kempek practice cooking a traditional food in “The Culinary Art Program”, they were very happy to present the best food for their teachers, like Sate, Empal Gentong, Sayur Sop, Sayur Asem, ikan bakar, etc.
“I decided to make Sayur Asem because I always crave it at home but never could make it.” Hanna said, and now Alhamdulillah I could make it together with my friends. If you want to make Sayur Asem, you must know this:
Sayur asem or sayur asam is a popular Indonesian tamarind dish. Common ingredients are peanuts, young jackfruit, melinjo, chayote, and long beans. All cooked in tamarind-based soups and sometimes enrichen with beef stock. Quite often, the recipe also includes corn
The sweet and sour flavour of this dish is considered refreshing and very compatible with fried or grilled dishes, including fish and lalapan, a kind of vegetable salad usually raw but can also be cooked, and is usually eaten with sambal terasi.
Enjoy your Sayur Asem…
