My favourite starter is a version of Gado Gado that I have in a cookbook at home. It appears differently if you google it, but this version is great:
Combine 1/4 chinese cabbage, 1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves, 1 cup bean sprouts, 2 sliced green onions, 1 chopped cucumber and 100g cubed tofu in a bowl.
Make a dressing of 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/3 cup roasted peanuts, 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger, 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind, 1 small red chilli chopped, and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.
Mix the dressing through the salad and then serve the salad spooned into a lettuce leaf per person.
This recipe serves 4 people.
