Indonuts

Have a Donut Indo Style: INDONUT! Those little light ‘n scrumptious dough tubes deserve a make over! Or, as I prefer to say “Indonize it!” Spice it up with  sambal oelek or have it with special peanut sauce and freshly pounded peanuts. How about the choc-‘n-cheese, sweet ‘n tart or the klepon style filled with Javanese palm…

Chili Con Nasi No Carne

The popular chili con carne with an Indo twist has a vegan sister and it’s called Chili Con Nasi – instead of meat we eat this spicy bean dish only with vegetables and steamed rice. I also serve krupuk udang (shrimp crackers) and atjar tamper (mixed pickles) with it.
