Gudeg Jogja

Gudeg Jogja
Some says that no tast­ing Gudeg means no vis­it­ing Jogja. It could be, because there’s no doubt any­more in pop­u­lar­ity of Gudeg as Jogja’s icon. It is made from unripe jack­fruit cooked with squeezed coconut and sea­soned with keluak (fruits of kepayang). Cook­ing this food needs many hours. Brown color is from hard­wood leaf. As like another spe­cial food of Jawa Ten­gah, char­ac­ter of Gudeg is sweet. It means much sugar and salt is just as bal­ancer. In the other hand, salty and deli­cious chicken is from mix of salt and squeezed coconut, and some sugar. It makes har­monic flavor.

There are many kinds of Gudeg when you are vis­it­ing Jogja such as Wet Gudeg, Gudeg Solo, and Dried Gudeg. Dry Gudeg often becomes gift because it is not spoiled eas­ily and being able for 3 days. In the other hand, other kinds of Gudeg are more deli­cious when it is eaten directly. It is served with rice and thick squeezed coconut soup, fried chicken, egg, tofu, and fried sam­bal kre­cek. Block sugar poci tea will com­plete the exotic of your food. But, it doesn’t need going to Jogja to taste Gudeg. Recipe below will treat your appetite.
