Ketoprak is a vegetarian dish from Jakarta, Indonesia, consists of tofu, beansprout, boiled egg, rice cake, and rice vermicelli served in peanut sauce.

 

Why people call it ketoprak ?  According to Betawi tradition, ketoprak was actually derived from the acronym of its ingredients; which are ket from ketupat, to from toge, and prak from digeprak (crushed), which describes the method on grounding garlic, and peanut granules together to create the peanut sauce.

When I don’t know what to cook today, this one always win my heart. Simple and easy. I always have instant rice cube and fried peanut/peanut butter at home. As Indonesian have lots of food come along with peanut sauce that;s the reason i always keep peanut butter or fried peanut at home. In every recipes that need fried peanut, you could substitute it with peanut butter and sometimes it;s level up the taste. Or you can mixed it like using half amount fried peanut and half amount peanut butter so it’s still have it;s original taste.

 

Let’s just try the recipe now!
