Indonesian Independence Day falls on the 17th of August every year and is a major event for Indonesian people.
In search of spices, the Dutch arrived in Indonesia and established a foothold over Indonesian territories in 1605 and since then, up until 1945 when the Declaration of Independence was signed with Sukarno as the first President, many skirmishes were fought over this country.
As major producers, it’s no surprise that Indonesian food is rich with spices and herbs. The different contrasting flavors and textures make this cuisine a popular choice for diners.? Among the many types of spices used, nutmeg features extensively in the Indonesian kitchen. The nutmeg tree is native to the Moluccas (the Spice Islands) and has been known as a useful medicine in a number of Asian societies. Many types of stews, soups and main dishes have a pinch of nutmeg in them to enhance the flavor.
