What is Rawon?

Rawon or Nasi Rawon/Rawon Rice (when served with rice) is a strong rich tasting traditional Indonesian beef black soup. It uses black nuts/keluak (Pangeum edule, fruits of kepayang tree) as the main spice which gives the strong nutty flavor and dark color to the soup. wikipedia

Rawon originally comes from Jawa Timur, one of province in Indonesia. My ancestor are from Jawa Timur that;s why i know this kind of food but unfortunatelly i never made it from scratch. Even though my mom always made this kind of soup at home and people love my mom’s rawon but i never care about the recipe until i live abroad, far from my hometown. Since I live in Perth 3 years ago, i started to realize how important to preserve my traditional food, besides i love indonesian food too much…lol. So now, let’s just try made rawon from the scratch. This time i tried recipe from mba Rachmah blog.
