Actually I wanna quit from making English foodblog after I deleted my old kitchen by mistake. I have my recipes page in Multiply, so why bother making a new one?
But after some begging-on-knee-request (nobody knelt down tho) from my non-Indonesian friends, I reconsider it. I told them that I might not update this blog frequently and they agreed. For them, as long as they can read my recipes in language that they understand, it doesn't matter.
Well, then here I am, writing you my new recipe that I created two days ago after recovering from sickness. It's simple and easy to make. I served it when some friends came last night to visit us. They said it's tasty and I believe that they were being honest *smile*

1 block of tofu, diced
6 leaves of Chinese cabbage, diced

2 lime kaffir leaves

2 red chilies, ring sliced
3 cardamom, bruised
1 knuklebone galagal, bruised
