“In Aceh, (on the island of Sumatera) steaks of the fish "bandeng" or "tongkol" can be used, but any white-flesh fish is fine, or if you are vegetarian, you can just use one and a half cups of eggplants. Traditionallly dish is soured by the use of sundried salted "bilimbing", (a type of small sour Starfruit) but it's easier to find tamarind pulp elsewhere in the world.”
