Balinese Suckling Pig, Apartement Style!

Ate these beauties while I was living in Jembrana, Bali, almost everyday!

Babi Guling or Suckling Pig, has a succulent meat with a salty rough skin. One portion of Babi Guling contains cooked rice, Lawar (vegetable mix with a strong coconut and Alpinia Galanga (known as Lengkuas in Indonesian) flavour.

Typically, suckling pig is a whole pig roasted over a fire and cooked to perfection. I’m living in a 2 bedroom apartment in Finland now, so I get creative. How creative? Let me break it to you!

Finding A Tasty Tempe in Finland

This is what a traditional javanese dining table looks like. Fried Tempe, rice (being cut out from the photo), jackfruit Gulai, deep-fried-eels, fried chicken intestines, raw cucumber, and other humble side dishes. Anything you can find in the rice field are fried, boiled or eaten raw. Shortly: a decadent farmer’s meal. Simple, humble but filling.
