Urap Bali (Boiled Vegetables with Balinese Spices)

I’ve got this recipe from Seri Masak Femina PRIMARASA (for beginner), Merebus dan Resep-Resep Terlezat.

I really enjoy this food. It is so simple, fresh, easy and fast to serve. So, fast food not always junk food, I guess. The recipe below is my modification, a little bit. If you want the original, just grab the book in bookstore :D


150 grams spinach
75 grams long pea (kind of legume), diced
50 grams cabbage, sliced
75 grams bean sprout
(You can also use finely sliced carrot)
750 ml water
A pinch of salt


Boil the water. Pour some water into bean sprout. Soak for 1 or 2 minutes. Remove the bean sprouts and drain it.
Keep the heat in medium. Add long pea to the boiled water, add a pinch of salt, stir. Wait until gentle enough or about 5 minutes.
Add spinach, for about 3 minutes then add cabbage. Then take them out of the water and drain.
You can also boil the vegetables separately, one by one with different boiled water. You will take some extra time if you do this.
I mix them because at the end they will be mixed too, it is only for practical purposes.
Set them aside.


100 ml thick coconut milk
2 chilies, sliced
5 shallots, peeled, sliced
1 inch Kencur (greater galingale, Kaempferia galanga), chopped
Jeruk purut leaves, chopped
½ teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
1½ teaspoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of hot cooking oil


Mix all spices, add hot cooking oil, stir well. Add coconut oil at last, stir.
Mix spices above with boiled vegetables.
Serve it immediately.
