More About This Menu
- A nasi padang feast is a great meal to turn into a potluck—just assign each of your guests a different dish and make a few pots of rice. If you’re making everything yourself, however, start ahead: the sambal, collard greens, and pastes for the curries can all be made a day or two beforehand and kept, refrigerated, until you’re ready for them.
- You can mash the potatoes for the fritters ahead of time, too; form and fry them just before you serve them so they stay hot and crispy.
- Kopi jahe, Indonesian coffee made with palm sugar and spicy smashed ginger, makes another great after-dinner drink in addition to or instead of the egg coffee.
- If you’d like to pair an alcoholic beverage with this menu, we recommend a light, dry beer to cut through the spicy flavors.
