The original main food of Indonesian people is rice. Its which comes from the rice plant that grows very fertile in Indonesia. There’s an anecdote in some of locals that “ A person actually has not eaten yet on that day, if he has not eaten rice ” 😊. For that reason we usually mix rice with side dishes and vegetables as the main menu and a glass of milk as a complement. That was known in Indonesia for the healthy motto "4 Sehat 5 Sempurna" (4 Healthy plus 5 Perfectly Complete).
But did you know that there are other main food ingredients which locals always consume every day and its durable to keep at home? Yes, we called it “Sembako” which is means “Sembilan Bahan Pokok” (nine basic ingredients).
