(Masbar) Serombotan (Balinese Mixed Vegetables with Two Sauces)

Time for masbar again 🙂 and this month’s theme is really healthy and also real nice. Why healthy because it’s vegetable and nice because it’s Indonesian. Oh how I love Indonesian food (lebay-mode-on).
Talking about this dish, it’s really popular in Bali. It’s originated from the eastern part of Bali which is Klungkung but you could easily find it in other part of Bali. I used to buy it for just Rp. 1000,00 a package (though not sure about the price now?) at the pasar senggol (night market) and it was more than enough for two persons to accompany rice.
I warn you though, if you’re not so fond of -oh-darn-it’s-so-hot-makes-my-mouth-on-fire-kinda-food- then better ask less of the sambal koples (peanut sauce). But for me the hotter the better.
Oh how I miss Bali….sob sob…..


For 4-6 persons

– 750 gr of mixed vegetables such as; yard long beans, water spinach, bean sprouts, spinach, winged beans, cut, cleaned and blanched
– 100 gr green aubergine
– 50 gr pigeon pea (kacang gude) (I used red beans), boiled
– 50 gr fried peanuts
– 50 gr short bean sprouts, washed
– 50 gr soy beans, boiled

For the Sambal Koples (Peanut Sauce)
– 75gr roasted peanuts
– 3 red chili
– 2 tsp dried shrimp
– Juice of 1 leprous lime (or kaffir lime if unavailable)
– 100 ml water
– 100 ml coconut oil
– Salt

For the Sambal Kelapa (Coconut Sauce)
– 1 garlic, finely chopped
– 2 cm fresh galangal, finely chopped
– 2 cm fresh lesser galangal, finely chopped
– 3 red chili, finely chopped
– 10 bird’s eye chili, finely chopped (less or more depending on your taste buds)
– 1 tsp dried shrimp
– 1 tsp palm sugar
– Salt
– 150gr freshly grated coconut

– To make the peanut sauce, use a pestle and mortar (me: food processor) to pound the peanuts, chilies and shrimp paste into a fine paste. Add the lime juice, water, coconut oil and a little bit of salt and mix well.
– To make the coconut sauce, use a pestle and mortar to pound the garlic, galangal, lesser galangal, chillies, shrimp paste, sugar and a little salt to a paste. Mix in the grated coconut.
– Just before serving, mix the vegetables and sauces together.
