Javanese bibimbap a.k.a PECEL ! ^______^
looks like bibimbap huh? :D
but this is 100% INDONESIAN. we call it with 'pecel'.
different from korean bibimbap, all the veggies here are boiled and plain. We do not eat this with gochujang, but instead with chilli pasta, we mix it with peanut sauce. we also add fried tempeh and tofu as the additional dishes.
while in the other tier, we have brown rice, with fried shrimp in condiment, fried egg (sunny egg-but i roll it so it looks more stylish :p), and some mixed fruit. lovely..
actually this theme caused by friend's request, he said he misses Indonesia so much after years in Brunei. he misses his homeland's cuisine. and he asked me to make bento si ayah with the original indonesian contents.
this morning, after i tagged him on this photo at my facebook, he said,
"I miss my home so badly, thanks to you, for making the traditional ones and tagging me on the picture....it cures my homesickness..."
I'm so pleased to know that.. :,)
wishing him to get home soon....
