Balinese Roast Pork with Coconut Sauce

Rated 5/5 from 10 Customer Reviews

In Bali this roast pork dish (known as babi guling) would traditionally be cooked for ceremonial occasions to feed over 100 people and involve roasting a whole pig.

Our version uses seasoned pork belly served with a spicy coconut sauce - made from a paste called base gede - containing typically Indonesian spices including lemongrass, galangal, turmeric and tamarind plus shrimp powder for an umami hit.
