In Bali - an island in Indonesia - 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 scaled-down version uses seasoned pork belly roasted in the oven to create moist meat and deliciously crispy skin. It’s served with a spicy coconut sauce - made from a paste called base gede - containing typically Indonesian spices including lemongrass, galangal, turmeric and tamarind for an umami hit. We’ve also got two of Indonesia’s most common table sauces: firstly a sambal - this version is cooked with tomato and chilli, and secondly kecap manis, a sweet and sticky soy sauce common all throughout Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.
