Sayur Asem > Wiki


Sayur asem or sayur asam (sour dish or tamarind dish) is a very popular vegetable soup dish in Indonesian cuisine. Several variations exist including sayur asem Jakarta (a version from the Betawi people of Jakarta), sayur asem kangkung (a version which includes water spinach), andsayur asem ikan asin (includes salted fish, usually snakehead murrel).

Common ingredients are peanuts, young jackfruitmelinjobilimbichayotelong beans, and tamarind. Quite often, the recipe also includes corn.

The Karo version of sayur asem is made using torch ginger buds and, more importantly, the sour-tasting seed pods.

The sweet and sour flavour of this dish is considered refreshing and very compatible with fried dishes, including fish and lalapan, a kind of vegetable salad usually raw but can also be cooked, and is usually eaten with sambal terasi.
