Inside The Local Thursday Market, West Sumatra (Part 2)


Okay, here is the rest of my story about local market in Payakumbuh. If you read my previous post, you already saw Satay, Cindua, and Lamang. So now i’ll introduce you to Sweet Potato Steamed Muffin.

So many traditional food in local market, and these muffins are the prettiest. The seller said they used yellow and purple sweet potato. I didt buy it, because i was full on that time, but i think its pretty good because people had line to buy these cute traditional steamed muffin. If i had chance to back this year, im pretty sure to buy it.

Another unique thing that you’ll find in Indonesian local market (not all of the local market)is Pila ampullacea (Keong Sawah) or local people say “Cipuk”. Indonesian people love it! I love it! Minangnese always cook it as curry, not too thick curry because it would be good if the curry little bit watery.

Most important ingridients of Minangnese cuisine fresh milled spices. For some people milling fresh spices is hard,and its local market sell it. Specially if you had a big party, and you have to cook for hundreds people, you’ll have teary eyes because have to mill kilos of chillies. You dont want do that, do you? These spices were fresh, because they milled it in the same day, right in the market. Good isnt it?

They sell a lot of things right there. For me, local market always interesting. So, if you had time, come to local market and have a good time there. Thats all, and bye bye.. đŸ˜€
