Today this is my sharing about Indonesian food. These photos are my favorite breakfast and snack.
Lontong is a kind of compressed rice cake wrapped inside a banana leaf, boiled and cut into small pieces on a plate. It is replacement of staple rice and can be found everywhere…in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
Lontong sayur is typically found with all its variations depend on the region. I almost often have it as my breakfast before going to school. Those types are Lontong Sayur Medan, Padang, Betawi and many more. In this photo, I was about to have Lontong Sayur Padang (Minangkabau version). Mixture between vegetables, coconut milk, spices, egg (or chicken) and crackers…yummy one.
While the second one is Tahu Gejrot. It is typical of Cirebon, West Java. Made of cut fried tofu and mixed with ketchup, chili, garlic, brown sugar, salt and poured into the cut tofu on a clay saucer and served for you.
