Behind Indonesia's Most Loved Delicacies

|

Indonesia is a country blessed with a rich variety of food, often using equally diverse spices. Almost everyone loves the scrumptious sate kambing (chops of tender goat meat grilled on a stick with sweet soy sauce and spices, served with peanut sauce) or martabak, both sweet and savoury (the soft fluffy texture of sweet martabak with melted chocolate and sesame seeds dripping from the sides, or the chewiness of juicy chicken and the crunchiness of green onions go perfectly well with the thick egg layers).
