In the west of java Indonesia where I grew up, amazingly I found so many interesting cultures and cuisines. For always having a fresh vegies with chili sauce in almost every dishes, I found that habit made me become a food lover.
After I got married, I started asking mom, aunties, grandma etc to share some recipes so I can pass on to my daughter later on to keep the tradition. Here are some of them and hope you will enjoy them as much as I do.
