Today we bring you the traditional recipe of Gado Gado. A fresh and healthy Indonesian salad, that you can cook in your home this weekend. And surely, it will satisfy all of our vegetarian followers… and those who aren’t too!
For peanut sauce:
• Step 1:
Blanch all vegetables: briefly immerse them in boiling water, so that they don’t get fully cooked: let them boil for a few moments, bring them out with a foamer and pass them right away by cold water.
• Step 2:
Prepare the sauce by frying the peanuts in a hot pan with a tablespoon of oil. Stir frequently for a few minutes, until slightly brown.
• Step 3:
Mix peanuts, garlic and chilli with a mortar for a smooth paste.
• Step 4:
In a saucepan, combine the processed mixture with tamarind extract, lemon juice and water (about 50 ml). Continue simmering to achieve the desired consistency, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
• Step 5:
Cut the tofu into 2 cm cubes. Fry the tofu in a frying pan with hot oil to lightly brown on all sides.
• Step 6:
Cut the tempeh and fry for a few minutes.
• Step 7:
Place all ingredients in a dish and serve with the peanut sauce on top.
