Introduction to Rendang

Padang is a big city in West Sumatra. If you hear about Padang, you must think of Malin Kundang and Rendang. Many people like rendang because it is delicious. So what is Rendang? Rendang is a Minang dish originating from the Minangkabau region in West Sumatra, Indonesia. It is a dish of beef or other meat cooked slowly in coconut milk and various spices until fairly dry.

We can easily see this food every day. Especially since we live on Java Island. But it tastes a bit different in Java. We can eat it starting from 20.000 rupiahs.

Although it's quite cheap, these two years I don't think it's safe to buy food from outside, or we dine in at the restaurant. So many people prefer to cook at home. I think you can try to make Rendang. Below I'll explain how to cook it. Below I will also tell you this information about it. I hope this article can help you understand more about Indonesian cuisine, especially rendang.

In general, rendang in Minang is served during traditional ceremonies. But for now, in Indonesian, it is generally served at the time of Eid al-Fitr. On Eid al-Fitr, why do you need to eat it?

Because meat was a very expensive thing in the past, ordinary people can only eat it at big festivals. And to this day, still continue this habit. So every Eid, it's really mandatory to have some delicious and meaty foods like rendang.
