Indonesian cooking and Indonesian food for this "The Crazy Lover"? My love. Love for cooking the dishes, as well as devouring into Indonesian cuisines. What about my other half-half and Indonesian food? Oh-Well! He is not a big fan, but I guess, over time, over the donkey years we have been married, he sort of have accepted. Apart from realizing that, every now and then, he should give way to the type of food I love. Considering I am the chef at home all the time and not him. Alright. Let’s hit it to the recipe now. Indonesian Vegetarian Red Chilli Brinjal/Terung Kampung Masak Cabe Merah. Trust me, packs a punch for enlivening your food senses. Eaten alongside, what else can it be, except rice for Malaysians like me and I believe for the Indonesians too.

2 tomatoes - bruise/pound lightly
