 Homey and Humble Tumpeng Mini with Saté Telur Puyuh (Quail Egg Saté/Satay)
Hello everyone! How are you? It’s so great to see you all again :D. Through this post, I want to tell you about a special monthly foodie program that my friend, Momon of Mari Bermain di Dapur, and I have arranged. What foodie program? Well, it is a foodie program where Momon and I will regularly post an Indonesian recipe once in a month (on the first week of the month). For Momon, I’m really sorry for coming way late. This week was pretty crazy for me (main issue deadline and taking care of my mom who had been hospitalized *gadzillions thanks to Allah, she’s fine now :D).

As Indonesian, both Momon and I are certainly always in love with our national food. We are always curious about them. That’s the reason why two of us make this event, we want to make our monthly foodie event as our media to know and learn more about our food. As I’m a baking dumb-dumb while Momon is really good at baking, my task is to post something “cooking” while Momon’s will be something “baking” hehehe :D.  But it doesn’t mean that I will always post something cooking and Momon’s will be something baking; we can come up with any Indonesian food recipes that we have cooked or baked ^^. As this program is totally new that the participants are only Momon and me, we widely open the door for everyone who wants to join us and to introduce our Indonesian food that is so rich in variety from Sabang to Merauke :D. No worry about what to cook or bake, we don’t have any special theme every month - just go with your favorite recipes as long as they are Indonesian :D. As for the language, you can use English, Bahasa Indonesia, or other languages that you master ^^. I want to name this foodie program --> “Indonesian Food Party” (IFP); but I need to ask Momon about it first since we have not discussed ‘bout it yet ;p (hope she’ll like it ^^). I think I also want to make a logo for this foodie event LOL! We have a great expectation that many of you, especially Indonesian food bloggers, would like to join us in this foodie event :D.

As the maiden recipe post for our Indonesian food program, I come across with simple Saté Telur Puyuh (Quail Egg Saté/Satay) recipe. In Indonesia, Saté is not only about grilled meat on a bamboo skewer. We love to call every food arranged on bamboo skewers (from meat to vegetables) as Saté ^^. Saté Telur Puyuh is one of popular side dishes in Indonesia that we can easily find them sold by street food hawkers to big restaurants. Saté Telur Puyuh is also traditional accompaniment to Soto Ayam (Javanese Chicken Soup). The kind of spice bases used for Saté Telur Puyuh itself are many - from the more complicated yellow/red spice bases to the super simple one just like the one I come up with today :D.

I also submit this post for another foodie event by Indonesian food bloggers, Masak Bareng Yuuk!!! (Let’s Cook Together!!!) with the theme “Food for Birthday Celebration”. As you can see from the pict above, I enjoy my Saté Telur Puyuh with a mini set of Tumpeng Rice with some other side dishes. The set I come up with is my very own humble and homey version, not like the common Indonesian festive one for celebrations. Tumpeng rice set is one of common traditional dishes prepared for celebrating birthday in Indonesia. For the Tumpeng (the cone-molded steamed rice) is mostly made of Nasi Kuning (Indonesian Yellow Fragrant Rice) or sometimes Nasi Gurih (Savory and Fragrant Rice). In my post case, I come up with the latter :D. I made this mini Tumpeng set for celebrating my aunt’s birthday some months ago. She loved what I made for her and enjoyed my very humble gift of simple everyday cooking for her birthday :D. For the quail egg saté/satay, I used the basic spice for Semur (Indonesian sweet soy sauce based stew).
