1. SUP UDANG- SHRIMP SOUP
Category: Soups & Stews Style:
Other Special Consideration: Quick and Easy
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.

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
water to boil the meat
Spices ( ground)
shallots – I use more than 3 cloves
garlic – I use more than 3 cloves
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
