Soto Betawi

this noon, when I asked my friend who is working on the 14th floor, where is she going to have lunch, she told me that her boss and colleagues are going to try Soto Betawi which was on the newspaper. So, I joined them.

Kerak Telor

Yesterday, I had this kerak telor, a traditional Betawi (native Jakarta)omelette made of glutinous rice cooked with chicken/duck egg and served with shredded coconut and a dried shrimp topping.

I cooked Petai for lunch. Petai is believed good for kidneys. Just a little info, I had my first petai about 5 years ago because for 20 years, cooking & eating petai in our house was prohibited by my dad. He coulnd't stand at all the smell of petai.

There are 2 famous ways in Indonesia to cook petai:

1. Petai with chilli and chicken's liver and neck
2. Fried petai with scrambled egg and kecap manis (sweet soya beans sauce).

Just take a look how easy to cook the 2nd way.

- Petai
- onion, garlic
- red chilli
- kecap manis (sweet soya beans sauce)
- salt
- scrambled eggs
don't forget a little bit of oil to fried all the ingredients.
