seems like kari but they use santan with many spices like pepper, lemongrass, galinggale with palm sugar.
usually, orem-orem serve with ketupat, soft chicken and tempe with fried onion showing and if you like, add salted egg. yummmy 😀

4 green tomatoes (sliced large)
3 green chilies, wash the seeds, oblong slices
3 kaffir lime leaves
Spices that are:
4 red onions

How to make:
– coconut milk boiled with sliced tempe, until slightly thick coconut milk (shrink). Then enter the tomatoes, green pepper, salt and sugar, a little seasoning, stir until smooth.
