Recipes By SOE
Indonesian traditional snack usually consist of : glutinous rice, coconut milk, shredded coconut, palm sugar, and... colored green (pandan leaves flavored). It is kind of typical snack around Malaysia, Thailand, and neighboring South East Asia.
Of course we have snack that has no characters above, but that still consider as traditional Indonesian, because it have been known in the archipelago for really long time. Usually those are snacks that we've adopt during colonial era, or even older than that! Sometimes that particular food stray so far away from the original food, but still hold the same name! Or visa versa!
Noodle in bahasa Indonesia is "mie". We eat quite a lot of noodle, but that's not consider as staple food, it is more like snack. Because.....we life for rice!!!
Mie Godhog is consider as unique. We can call it special food from Yogyakarta (central Java) area.
Unlike the popular bakmie/mie goreng, that served dry, with strong flavor of sweet soybean sauce, mie godhog served with some soup, without sweet soybean sauce. Well,actually it is not really soup, not that much liquid, but definitely not dry.
This recipe is using "ebi" or small dried shrimp. It is not necessity, actually. This kind of food is open for creativity. The most important is, it have to use classic yellow noodle, and of course served with decent amount of liquid.
Usually, we can buy "bumbu kacang" in the convenient store easily. But, i think making it from scratch is fun (i mean, fun to draw).
I draw indonesian style stone Mortar and pestle, to ground the ingredients. But, no worries, blender also works well.
