The Story of Sayur Lodeh
The origin of Sayur Lodeh is Java, Indonesia. But it is also very popular and famous in Malaysia and Singapore.
Meanwhile, we, veganlogy have our vegan version of Sayur Lodeh. Sayur is in Bahasa, means vegetable/veggie. And Lodeh means the mixed of vegetables (usually around 6-10 kinds of vegetables). It is usually cooked in coconut milk soup.
The most common ingredients are Tempeh, cabbage, eggplant, long beans, carrot, tofu, lady finger, jackfruit, jicama, green, red chili what ever vegetables that you have in hand and all these cooked in white coconut milk soup. You can add more red hot bird”s eye chili if you love spicy coconut milk.
