Lontong Sayur Lodeh
Today we’ll share a hearty dish that’s bound to spice up your morning and warm up a tummy or three – and just for you, we’ve made it fuss-free!
Lontong Sayur Lodeh is an aromatic vegetable coconut curry which features compressed rice cake (better known as Lontong), complemented with a rich and mildly spicy broth and a host of healthy greens.
Our irresistible rempah, which we give a good blend and light toss in a pan till fragrant. Adding turmeric and toasted belacan (dried prawn paste) to the base of garlic, shallots, dried chillies (soaked), and dried shrimp, and you’re all set to channel that elusive wok-seared taste.
A nourishing combination of white cabbage, long beans, yam beans and carrot bring a wholesome flavour to the soup, and the glass noodles, deep-fried tau kwa & bean curd sticks and tempeh are the perfect contrast with their springy and crispy textures.
When it’s time, simply spoon the piping hot vegetable curry over the slices of lontong and enjoy as a complete breakfast or brunch. A great way to start the day, with plenty of honest-to-goodness tradition to carry you through!
