Balinese Cuisine

Lawar is one of Bali’s most famous local dishes.Just Like Dracula this lawar Made from pig’s raw blood and spices, together with an assortment of other goodies, lawar can be found in every village in Bali.
Balinese cuisine has many signature dishes including babi guling (Suckling Pig) and bebek (Spicy Banana Leaf)betutu.
One of the local dishes that all Balinese love is lawar, with every family making lawar at special occassions such as ceremonies. Attending a wedding ceremony in Bali,
The ingredients of lawar takes from spices
such as:
shrimp paste,
salt and ground pepper,
galangal and other roots
grated coconut,
String Beans,
boiled young jackfruit
and occasionally Casavas leaves,
all chopped up and blended together.
The meat distinguishes the type of lawar – chicken, duck, beef, pork, turtle, or even dragonfly.
Although it is considered a delicacy at ceremony time, fortunately turtle lawar is becoming less and less common. Dragonfly lawar is most unusual because it takes so much time and money because you have to use so many dragonflies to fill you up! Most lawar has raw blood mixed with it but not all Balinese like this and many prefer their lawar vegetarian.On the day of a ceremony Balinese people rise early to prepare food. The men will take care of the sate, the women chopping away preparing vegetables. Men are also responsible for the lawar and sit in a circle, chopping, chatting, and mashing, generally socializing. There’s no rush in Balinese ceremonies and the men enjoy chatting, sipping a coffee of some arak, while making the lawar. Lawar can be spicy and very salty, so a small portion is best for your first time. The nasi bungkus (rice to go) that is sold on the street from a motorbike, in small packets for 2,000rp sometimes contains lawar.
You can get lawar, along with many other authentic Balinese dishes in several restaurants in Bali.,But If you go to a Balinese person’s village tasting lawar and sipping some arak will earn you some cool stuff.
