OMG! It’s the first time i saw the on goings on Hari Raya Haji Korban in Indonesia in the 2 years of life here!

ok, the first time in Jatinangor they did lots of slaughtering opposite my hostel, because i woke up late i didn’t get to see the whole process. There were small parade along the Jalang Sayang. I can’t recall so much of the details as memories fades me, quite frequently now.

On the 19th Dec, my campus had quite a number of goats! Baaaa….
They were all smelly and hairy and munching on the campus plants! There was no cows though, but what smell will it be with moo moo around.

The Hypermart in Matos were selling loads of fresh meat and fishes! The freshest i’ve ever seen in the fish section! So tempted to buy one or two but i don’t know how to cook!

Giant Fish Roe

I wonder what sort of fish did the roe came from? It was so huge to make my jaw drop and look like a jakun!

At the meat section i see a woman buying like a big plastic bag of mince beef meat! WhoLLY MOLLY! It’s alot! She practically ask for the whole tray! And others were queuing up for the same thing!

These are the others beef spare parts packed at the frozen section that eve of Hari Raya Haji Korban.

L: beef guts, R: Beef Skin

Looks eew? Well there’s more spare part they eat. I’ve tried the cookings of the spare parts and it ain’t too bad. I’ve not eaten beef guts so no comment, probably taste like “Kun Chiang” which is pork guts in Bak Kut Teh or any soup. The beef skin, they usually cut it in tiny pieces and cook it with tofu, stir fry it with wet chillies and sweet soya sauce and other condiments that i don’t know of.

L: beef tendons, R: Beef knee

ok the names probably sound weird, on the left they call it urat sapi and the right is kikil sapi. Eating urat itself i’ve never tried but usually they do mix it in bakso (which is Indonesian Beef Balls) and name it Bakso Urat. Not bad.. crunchy! Kikil sapi from what i was told from my friend is the knee part of the cow or bull. Didn’t know what it actually looks like until then. This you can find in Nasi Padang dish, which is cooked in lots of santan like curry kuah (but iit ain’t spicy at all). It looks like a big chunk of beef skin which is very hard to tear apart. Ok sounds gross… but the Malaysian boys of my classmate love it!

L:boiled beef lungs, R: mix beef meat for soto

Well that is really EeeW! I didn’t know they treat this as a delicacy. Do you know that beef lung and chicken feet skin can be made into chips here @ keripik? Beef lung is tough feet! Really unchewable unless one has carnivorous teeth! As for the right mix beef meat is for soto cooking. Soto can be make of chicken or beef, which is actually meat boiled in soups with a little bit of vege. However i don’t like the typical beef soto, i only like the one from Makassar, the dish they call COTO MAKASSAR.
