Jamie Oliver makes gorgeous gado-gado Indonesian salad on Jamie’s Comfort Food.
Jamie says: “This is a mega salad that has its roots in Sundanese cooking and has now become the typical street food of Jakarta in Indonesia. Gado-gado means medley or potpourri, which refers to all the different seasonal veggies and ingredients that are used, making it slightly different wherever you go and whatever the time of year.”
The ingredients are: 400 g new potatoes, 4 large free-range eggs, 400 g firm silken tofu, sesame oil, ½ Chinese cabbage, 2 ripe tomatoes, 1 handful of radishes, ½ cucumber, 2 handfuls beansprouts (ready to eat), ½ bunch of fresh coriander, prawn crackers, optional and 1 fresh bird’s-eye chilli, optional.
For the sauce: 1 clove of garlic, 50 g palm sugar, 120 g crunchy peanut butter, 1–2 fresh red chillies, juice of 2 limes, 2 teaspoons fish sauce, 1 tablespoon low-salt soy sauce and 1 tablespoon tamarind paste.
