Gudeg Jogja

Sunday, August 2, 2009

I was in the middle of cooking this when I noticed that my "daun jeruk" ( kaffir lime leaves) stock was almost gone as I used some for this meal. We usually asked them from our friends at church who have the plants. Interestingly, just as I finished cooking, Silvi called to ask me if I want some of her lime kaffir leafs since she was just about to prune her plant. Off course I said: "Yes." What a timely blessing! Thank you, neighbor! =)
Below is the recipe for my future reference:

Gudeg Jogja

1 small chicken cut into small pieces
5 egg - hard boiled, peeled
1 can or 500 gr green jack fruit
1 package fried tofu (cut into smaller pieces) - I don't know if the original Gudeg has tofu I  add this just for variety. :)
