According to wikipedia Gado-gado (in Indonesian or Betawi language), also known as Lotek (in Sundanese and Javanese) is an Indonesian dish or Indonesian salad consisting of boiled vegetables served with a peanut sauce dressing.
I made this recipe for the first time today, though had tried it a number of times before. This peanut sauce has quite variations, but the one used here has a very spicy, sweet and sour taste. Some people simply have this peanut sauce with boiled rice. Its one of my family’s favourite.
