Falling In Love with Balinese Cuisine

May 01, 2015

Bali is one of Indonesia’s popular destinations. The beauty of its beaches, culture, people and cuisines has attracted thousands of people from all around the world. When we are talking about Balinese cuisine, we will be brought to imagine the spicy, savory and rich in herbs taste, but did you know the names of Balinese spice and seasonings?

Basa Gede or Basa Rajang, is a spice paste for most of Balinese dishes’ basic ingredients. Basa Rajang is consisted of garlic, red chili peppers, Asian shallots, nutmeg, ginger, turmeric, palm sugar, cumin, shrimp paste and salam leaves (Indonesian bay leaf).

Balinese dishes are punctuated by basa genep, the typical Balinese spice mix used as the base for many curry and vegetable dishes, and to marinade, they are using the Bumbu. Then, there’s also the Tabia lala manis, which is a thin soy sauce with chili peppers, and finally, the popular sambal matah to accompany almost all of Balinese dishes.
