Another challenge from Indonesian blogger group, this time the theme is about cookies. If you would like to join us, find the link to submit your post here.

 

When it comes to the kitchen, sometimes i’m a bit selfish, i only cooked every food that i like…lol. Cookies are related to eid mubarak, because i only made cookies when it comes. When admin announce the challenge, yay…thank God, i still have some cookies left at home. Peanut butter cookies usually made from peanut, but recently there are some modification in ingredients to make it easier, some people using peanut butter to replace peanut. In my childhood, peanut cookies always made when lebaran or christmas. The texture so far a bit different between cookies that made from peanut and peanut butter. The one made from peanut had stronger texture which i love more.

IDFB Challenge #15: Sapo Tahu

IDFB PERANAKAN-resize

Being missed lots of idfb challenge recently, now i said to myself not to miss again this time. With a wok, knife and a good will (feel like i want to make war in the kitchen, lol) i browse some information about peranakan culinary. It’s quite difficult to find out the list of the food, but basically it’s about food that would be acculturation between chinese and indonesian culture. Because when you said peranakan, people would think about chinese people that married to indonesian than people would call their kids peranakan. They usually maintained their culture partially despite their native language gradually disappearing a few generations after settlement. Peranakan or Nonya cuisine combines chinese and other influences into a unique blend.The result of blending Chinese ingredients with various distinct spices and cooking techniques used by the Indonesian community. This gives rise to Peranakan interpretations of Indonesian food that is similarly tangy, aromatic, spicy and herbal. And because of the acculturation itself, they change some ingredients like arak or something that moslem couldn’t use with something else that is halal.

For other reference about peranakan cuisine, just go here.

Me and my family love going to chinese restaurant, sapo tahu is one of our favorite food. It’s actually kind of simple but powerful food for me. So this time i cooked sapo tahu which i know as one of peranakan cuisine.
