What a weekend. With Deepavali, my parent's wedding anniversary and Hari Raya Puasa all within a day or two of each other, it has been an almost endless feasting of seafood, red meat, deep fried food and curries made with coconut milk. These are just the main meals, I am not even counting those chocolate cakes, egg rolls and other irresistible pastries that we are munching on the rest of the times. Even the dog participated in the fats and cholesterol binge by devouring a couple of marrow bones and roast chicken.
Organizing the recipes and photographs will take a day or two. Meanwhile, here are some Indonesian dishes that Yulia had cooked for Hari Raya Puasa: (clockwise from right) Opor Nangka which is a curry using unripe jackfruit, Lepet which is glutinous rice with grated coconut wrapped in coconut leaves and Rendang Daging, a spiced mutton stir fry.
