Some of you might remember a picture I posted on my facebook page that looked like this.....
There was a bit of speculation on what it was and I was both heartily amused and VERY embarrassed... but I was still working with the recipe so I hadn't put it up.... until now.
I've been tweeking it and tweeking it and finally got it about right I think... and NO... this won't happen to you now!
First of all - if all you want is the basic Ketjap Manis (ie: the sticky, sweet, thick soy sauce) then you might actually be dissapointed in this. This is much more flavoursome and will work out to cost more than what you can buy the boring stuff for (slightly biased - sorry)
This recipe is for a sweet, sticky thickish (not really thick) savoury and rich sauce that is just fantastic over rice, as a marinade or part of a stirfry. It goes PARTICULARLY well with fried rice - Steamed or not!
So - where did I get the idea? Well... it started with a thought (don't they all?) Could I make it? There wasn't any Thermomix ones, but I found plenty of other recipes. Thing was... they were all just completely different! So... I've taken the best of what I liked and make it Thermomix compatible.
It is such a flexible recipe! Don't like something? Prefer something else? Change/swap/add - you're in charge! Make it yours!
Note: this makes nearly a litre - so make sure you have the jars/bottles for it.
