Recently we spent a month in Indonesia -- enjoying the fascinating sights, welcoming people and delicious food. This recipe brought back wonderful memories. It is an authentic-tasting dish and the whole family loved it. We like strong flavours, so added quite a bit of additional sambal oelek and ketjap manis at the table, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing your successful experiments here.
One of my favourite. In Indonesian it spells "Bakmi". Indonesians love their kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
Many years ago while living in Holland a Dutch friend gave me her family recipe for Bahmi Goereng. This became a favourite of everyone who tried it, but it needed a Conimex Bahmi Spice Mix to work. Having been asked to make Bahmi Goereng as a treat, but having no Spice Mix available, in desperation looked up alternative recipes on-line and found this one. It saved the day and fed 20 very happy souls. It is delicious, tastes really authentic, and brought back so many happy memories of Haarlem, and Rijsttafels. I occasionally leave out the cauliflower and use extra leek, but apart from that have changed nothing. What a find.
