I made Rawon before, you can find the recipe here. As this food is my family favorite, i often made it especially on the weekend. Even though my mom recipe is one of the best that i ever tried, but i always love to try another recipe. This time i tried one from Sajian Sedap website. Let’s just work it out.
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.
