Since the 14th century, Nasi Uduk came to the land of Sunda Kelapa (the name of Jakarta now) through trade routes. The origin of rice uduk brought from the Land of Malay. The Malay people on the island of Sumatra and then migrated to the island of Java.

Some mention that uduk rice comes from the Sundanese 'uduk' which means united or mixed. But some say that the name 'uduk' is etymologically has the meaning of the word 'hard'.

It is true, the first nasi uduk identical to the food sold in carts and can only be found in the market only. Nasi uduk first sold with banana leaf bases in Kebon Kacang area, Tanah Abang, Jakarta.

The menu of Nasi Uduk Betawi is stews (jengkol, tahu, tempe) balado egg, vermicelli, fried onion, crackers, peanut sauce. Even fried chicken, it becomes the main complement of uduk rice in other cities outside Jakarta.

Typically, sellers of rice trade between 6 to 10 am. People buy rice uduk to take home or eat on the spot. Usually wrapped in rice paper and newspaper coated. Most delicious when nasi uduk coated with banana leaves. Drinking warm fresh tea.

In Jakarta, the nasi uduk still sold by the Betawi heritage is down in Rawa Belong and Kebon Kacang areas. In these two areas is no longer a matter of tongue and stomach, but becomes the image or cap of the citizens of the city. For those in this area, selling uduk rice is a family business that brings in more than enough money. In a certain moment, nasi uduk can also be enjoyed as a dinner menu.

Looks delicious. Well, not sure about the Jengkol, but the other pictures look great for me. I wonder if I can find somewhere local to me that does something like this

in Jakarta, in the area of ​​Kebun Kacang, Kalibata, or some restaurants.

there are also selling Nasi Uduk pavement with a cart or sale on the terrace of their home.

before buying, you should be able to ask the seller first: is there any jengkol here? :)

Oh if I was over there it would be so easy. I'm not though, currently being in Adelaide and normally in Sydney. I did know a place in Perth that had it on their menu at least, but I've not been in Perth for a few years either

if many devotees in australia, maybe I can export jur jengkol there :)

and, paid using SBD (y)
