Kecipir, in Gado Gado

GJ asked Sarinah to cook Gado Gado this week...mmm yummy!

On the platter there was a strange green vegetable that I had never seen before. It is called Kecipir and was grown in our garden!

It is similar to a green bean and was delicious.

I have this great book called A Jakarta Market by Kaarin Wall; it is available at AWA as well as ANZA. This book has black and white sketches of common Indonesian fruits and vegetables as well as a short description. The book has the local name as well as overseas names which makes it easy for Sarinah and I to swap recipes as well as write out the shopping list.
