Hello delegates! I guess, most of you would stay at a hotel with fancy international food, when especially you go abroad to attend some Model United Nations. This time, let me tell you one or some reason why you should explore traditional cuisine on your surroundings, based on food lover point of view, cause who doesn't? lol
Gudeg (I wish I could provide a proper explanation on how to properly pronounce it) is a native traditional food from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. It is made from unripe young jack fruits and has sweet characteristic. It is cooked by boiling the unripe young jack fruits for several hours with palm sugar and coconut milk as well as several additional spices such as, garlic, shallot, candlenut, coriander seed, galangal, bay leaves, and teak leaves, the latter giving a reddish brown color to the dish.
Generally, as a standalone food it can be considered as a vegetarian food because it uses vegetable as the main source, it will usually be served with steamed rice. However, people mostly consume it along with other complementary food, such as egg and chicken as well as krecek, a stew made of crisp beef skins with spicy taste. Other complimentary includes hard tofu, and tempe (soy bean cake) to name a few.
