The Top 3 Foods to Eat in Indonesia

The Top 3 Foods to Eat in Indonesia
1. Nasi Goreng 
Literally translated, Nasi Goreng means "fried rice" in Bahasa Indonesian, but the exciting flavours created by a combination of tamarind and chilli makes this anything but an ordinary fried rice. This very special fried rice is the national meal of Indonesia and is one of the most well known and loved Indonesian dishes around the world. It can be served with a wide variety of sides such as satay, a fried egg, tomatoes and lettuce. 
It's possible to get delicious Nasi Goreng at home using Asian Home Gourmet's Indonesian Sambal Fried Rice spice paste.

2. Rendang
A hot, drier-style curry from Indonesia that has a blend of rich, coconut cream and tangy spices, rendang is ideal for those who like a bit of chilli. Traditionally served with beef, it can also be served with chicken or lamb, and truly provides a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Regardless of the weather, the exotic flavours of rendang make it an exquisite dish to eat all year long. Vegetarians who would like to try rendang can do so with Asian Home Gourmet's Indonesian Rendang Curry spice paste - just substitute the meat with vegetables. 

3. Satay
This famous charcoal-grilled kebab appears on menus from San Francisco to Amsterdam. Originally from Indonesia, satay is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat that is usually served with a sauce. Due to the way it is prepared and cooked, the meat is tender and succulent. It is definitely a must-try, regardless if you're a foodie or not.
