Semur actually was came from one of Dutch word that is “smoor” which is means as meat that be boiled with some slices of shallots and garlic, also tomatoes in a time that quite long. In Indonesia, this food then developed and getting more evolved after added by some other Indonesian traditional spices.
Moreover, it is importantly noted, that even today the mostly semur we can find is not just the meat must be boiled but can also be added by some egg such as chicken egg, quail egg, even duck egg.
Furthermore, some people in Indonesia even combine and mix it with some cuts of jering or yeah in Indonesia it called as “jengkol” or commonly we all knew that this is a species of flowering tree in the pea family; that is fabaceae.
Histories even have been shown up that any kinds of boiled meat dishes in Indonesia actually have been well–known wince the 9th century of Masehi started.
This food actually came from Dutch. This is basically one of any kinds of Indonesian food that made from potato. Even ya perhaps some of us knew that the name of the perkedel itself was from Dutch word, that is “frikadel”, but this food has been getting evolved time by time.
By the existence of this food, it also bring us to the conclusion that of course Dutch colonialism in the past was succeed on infiltrating their influence to Indonesia archipelago through their food. Even yes we also have to keep in mind that the original perkedel in Dutch there actually is made by chopped meat.
Basically, the cubit cake is one of many other popular snacks in Indonesia. It has been very easy to find even in any public corner in every street and in every city in Indonesia.
Historically, this snack one was adapted by one of Dutch snacks in the past. By the existence of this snack even till today, we can also grab a conclusion that the Dutch colonialism at that was really really succeed on infiltrating their influence and determination to Indonesia.
So yeah good people, there above are three of many other kinds of foods in Indonesia which are have been lingering and existed here since the past of Dutch colonialism began in our archipelago.
Nothing more needed, except the care within our heart as Indonesian civilians to nurture the heritages that scattered in our country, ranging from its own cultures, the richness of its pieces of nature, such as beach, park, building, various arts, including the traditional culinary ones.
These are all very and precious indeed to maintain even to keep lasting. So that any other countries or any other outside influence cannot steal or influence it further or even to claim it as theirs as much issues spinning in the past. You know what the country we mean here. But of course, after that past issue happened at that moment, we can all understood that our country power is truly low and still cannot defend what all ours.
