Ikan Goreng Sambal Jengkol Belado

This is some yummy stuff for lunch or dinner!!

Jengkol/Jering is similar to Petai ( stinky beans ),  I personally love Jengkol, it taste and texture is unique and when you fall in love with this stinky but yummy stuff, you'll know what im talking about. *lol   i think i prefers to eat Jengkol Rendang then Beef Rendang, seriously Jengkol taste better than beef!

Its quite hard to find Jengkol out of Indonesia.  If you see them, they might be a little costly.  So at this point of time, i think i'm lucky while staying in Indonesia which i could find Jengkol all year round.

1kg Jengkol

Bunch of Kemangi as side dish/garnish
