We all know about roasted bread. But what if we serve it in a hot plant-based milk sauce, including coconut milk sauce?
This recipe is a traditional Indonesian recipe that we only serve during the month of Ramadan to break the fast. That's because we can only get a supply of roasts during the month of Ramadan.
So every Iftar, this dish is filling enough to break the fast, with a sweet and savory taste.
ROASTED BREAD / 'ROTI KLATAK'
We call these loaves 'Roti Klatak'. Actually, this is a crispy and crunchy texture of bread from the roasting process.
The shape of 'Roti Klatak' here is small compared to bread in general and that is its uniqueness. When served with hot coconut milk sauces, their shape will enlarge after absorbing the sauce mixture.
Without being cooked, this type of bread is also delicious to enjoy just like that with tea or coffee. Some of the references read say that 'Roti Klatak' was intended for seafarers who traveled long distances and then enjoyed it with tea or coffee. The dry and crispy texture makes this bread last long.
The price is also quite cheap, for one package it sells for around 0.1 to 0.2 USD depending on the regions in Indonesia.
So this time I will show you how to serve Roasted Bread in Hot Coconut Milk Sauce with Brown Sugar. I promise it's really easy to do. You can also use toasted bread in general, but make sure the bread is really crispy.
- 2 packs of roasted bread or about 100 grams
- 800 ml of coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 200 grams of brown sugar with 300 ml of water. Melt them into a sauce.
- Pandan leaves, but you can replace it with vanilla to add a delicious fragrance.
- STEP 1
- STEP 2
- STEP 3
- STEP 4
- STEP 5
The result looks like porridge, but not really. We can still see the texture of the bread on the surface of the sauce.
Add brown sugar sauce to your liking. You can also use this type of sweetening sauce instead of brown sugar, and you can also cook the sweetener together with coconut milk sauce.
Sweet and savory, it is enough to replenish our energy after fasting. But if it's not Ramadan, I would also like to make this recipe when there is roasted bread in stock.
