Vegetarian recipe for Indonesian sayur urap salad

Vegetarian recipe for Indonesian sayur urap salad

Indonesian sayur urap is a blanched vegetable based salad with shredded coconut dressing.

It originates from Java (one of the largest islands of the Indonesian archipelago).

Sayur means mixing and in this case, sayur urap means mixing any blanched vegetables with spices and grated coconut until it is well blended.

In Bali, it is known as lawar and sometimes meat is used, like pork, so it would be called lawar babi. We took a cooking class in Ubud during our travels on Bali with Be Bali Day and learnt to make a vegetarian Indonesian sayur urap.
