   NOTES:
  
   *  A tasty Indonesian dish -- This is a recipe that my mother, Bep, has
   perfected.  I have no idea where the recipe originated from but it is a
   great dish that she has perfected over the years. The leftovers are great
   next day, hot or cold. Yield: serves 4.
  
   *  Editor’s note:  this recipe is unique in the history of alt.gourmand in
   that virtually none of the ingredients is available in an ordinary North
   American grocery store.  However, with a certain amount of difficulty I=
  was
   able to find all of the ingredients in specialty food stores nearby=
  (though
   admittedly I live in a wonderland of ethnic grocery stores and specialty
   markets.) The recipe is so delicious that it’s worth including even though
   most readers will not be able to find the ingredients to make it.
  
   North Americans can read ground beef for mince beef and bacon for middle
   bacon.  You can make an interesting substitute for this dish by using
   Mexican seasonings instead of Indonesian; the flavor will not be at all
   authentic but some of the spirit is preserved.
