Product Review : Sambel Pecel KEMANGI and a GIVEAWAY !

pecel3

Everyone of us must have special food that really close to our heart, memories and tongue. The food you will crave again and again. It could also remind you to a special place or a special person. As for me, pecel (Javanese mixed vegetables salad with peanut sauce) has been close to my childhood memories. Being raised in a Javanese family, we put this dish into our favorite family recipe. We use various vegetables from water spinach, spinach, bean sprout, long beans, cabbage and cassava leaves. But what makes it so special is the sambal pecel or peanut sauce.

My paternal grandma who lives in Solo, Central Java, has always been made homemade sambel pecel. She chooses fresh ingredients and she used to grind them using mortar and pestle by herself (but for now, whenever she makes sambel pecel, she just ask someone to grind the ingredients for her). My dear grandma knows very well that I love her homemade sambel pecel, hence she make me a package of it and send it to me. Nothing can beat her sambel pecel and I keep saying this to my mom and grandma !

Pecel / Javanese mixed vegetable salad with peanut sauce

One day, I received a message from Mr. Aditya Susilo from Sambel Pecel Kemangi. He offered me Sambel Pecel KEMANGI and asked me if I want to try them out. I was absolutely curious and instantly said "yes" to him. Then the next few days, I got the package and I can't hardly wait to try it at home. Sambel Pecel Kemangi has 3 levels of spiciness, mild, medium and spicy. I should say this is the best sambel pecel besides my grandma's of course. :)  

 It smells good, the sweetness is just about perfect and the consistency of the dough is exactly the same as my grandma's sambel pecel.

TIPS : 
- For a jar of Sambel Pecel Kemangi (Kemangi peanut sauce) @ 250gr, mix with 110-120 ml boiling water. Stir gently until sambel pecel has dissolved. Ready to serve as dressing/sauce.
