Kuih Ondeh Ondeh

Finding vegan related food in Jakarta is a daunting task for me ever since I embarked on the journey of becoming a vegan. At most, I am lucky to find 1 or 2 vegetarian dish at more established or pricey restaurants whereby they 'might' help to omit all requested ingredients (onion, garlic, chives, eggs, alcohol or sauces of all animal origin) from certain vegetable dishes. Usually I do ended with a humble plate of stir fry green vegetable costing between USD8-12 per serving.  Unless the place serves full vegetarian food, or, me and hubby will have to order separate set of food / dishes.

自从我开始吃长素后, 才发现原来在雅加达寻找相关的素食餐馆是件困难之事. 在这个人口中有90%都是回教徒而他们大多数都是专吃牛肉的肉食者, 能购买到的菜类都相当有限. 我在这三年里真是吃腻了包菜,菜心,空心菜,白菜甚直我每次回吉隆坡都会从那儿带入20-30公斤回雅加达。若是我和丈夫一起的话,所带入(进飞机仓)的数量会高达90kg公斤。由于进口食品在此都非常贵,再加上选择有限,只好次次得辛苦的把巨重的行礼搬运入国。

The nearest vegetarian restaurant is at least 30-45mins drive away from our place. After going there continuously for 2 years, the place holds less appeal than to eat home cook meal.  I was told there are lots of good vegetarian restaurants in the northern part of Jakarta but the 1hr traveling time, plus additional 30-60mins of extended time for possible traffic congestion, put us off completely.


Today I am in the mood for something sweet and totally vegan, specially made for tummy. I have made ondeh ondeh many times using 蓝赛珍 Agnes Chang's Hawkers' Delights 街边风味小食, and I find the recipe pretty satisfactory.
