The best salad I have ever had is the Indonesia yummy gado gado salad.
Gado-gado is one of the well-known dishes from Indonesia. Gado-gado literally means “mix mix” since gado-gado is the plural word of gado, so gado-gado means mixes.
In Indonesia, gado-gado ( is not a salad dish group, it is a one dish meal.
Gado-gado, also known as Lotek, is a salad of slightly boiled, blanched or steamed vegetables and hard-boiled eggs, boiled potato, fried tofu and tempeh, and lontong, served with a peanut sauce dressing.
The best part is that it takes only 10minutes to prepare it at home
You can also try making it home by following the below mentioned steps:
1. In a bowl mix powdered jaggery, red chilli powder, peanut butter and coconut milk and mix well.
2. Now add the OrientAsian Indonesian Curry Paste ( and mix. Squeeze half a lemon and mix well. The dressing is ready
3. In a dish plate the all the vegetables one by one, followed by halved boiled eggs.
4. Add the fried onions to the dish
5. Now drizzle half of the dressing onto the vegetables and eggs and keep some on the side
6. Add toasted peanuts.
(Ps: There are different versions of this recipe, the one which I followed while making it for Myself was the above one.) .
Do try it at home once and let me know your views on the same.
Have a good day!
