Description: Another simple shrimp recipe I tried this time.

It takes only 30 to 40 minutes. The taste is a bit sour ( because of the lemonade I think) + spicy = nice ( I think) It is served best without rice, but as my family and I eat rice every day, so I’d say it tastes O.K served with rice.

Source :Nova Online ( collections of recipes, mostly Indonesian recipes.) Ingredients:

  • 300 gr shrimps, get rid of the heads 250 gr mushrooms – slice them 3 lemon grass – take the white part only,
  • then slice 10 red chili peppers ( you can reduce the amount if you prefer it less spicy.)
  • 10 green chili peppers
  • 2 tbsp lemonade
  • 1 tsp salt 2 tbsp oil fry with little oil. Then blend ( tender ingredients )

I stop eating chicken for some months already, therefore I need to find other recipes without chicken.

It is cooked with coconut oil, and that is the special thing about this recipe.

This food is typical food here- not only is it popular in Java, but other places- Perhaps, this food is cooked rather differently in outside of Java. This is called “Gulai” or “Gule” if it is pronounced quickly. It’s been so long since I posted recipes. I decided to post this as my family and I love this.

1 tsp sugar
100 ml coconut oil ( depends on the meat- 1 kg of meat will need more of coconut oil.)
lemon grass, smashed
ginger or galangale, smashed
lime leaves
bay leaves
water to boil the meat

Spices ( ground)
shallots – I use more than 3 cloves
garlic – I use more than 3 cloves
beef stock

1. Boil meat + add salt = wait until tender.
2. Remove the meat from the boiled water, and cube the meat
3. Refine the boiled water
4. Prepare a pan, put oil then saute the spices until fragrant. Put bay leaves, lime leaves,lemon grass, galingale – saute until fragrant. Add the beef cubes. Then pour the broth.
5. Add coconut oil, salt and pepper.
6. Simmer for about 5 or 8 minutes.

Happy cooking!

  1. Nice pictures.
    I’ve come across some of these dishes in kitchen where i’ve worked.
    Though this is a lot more authentic in nature.
    Simple and easy to follow recipes.

    • You think so?
      Yes I hope so that the instructions are easy to follow, hehe.
      I basically like simple recipes better, perhaps I am inexperienced with such complicated recipes.
