Have you ever tasted  tipat santok? This traditional food is the most popular on the Bali Island. Balinese people of all walks of life really like this simple menu. Children, teenagers and old people never get bored with this food because it is easily obtained. Moreover, the flavor can be customized because the sauces can be increased or decreased as desired.

Tipat santok is a breakfast menu which is very well known in Bali. Tipat santok with spicy sweet sauces are often becoming people’s choice. It is called so because it offers sweet and spicy flavor. Spicy here does not happen due to too much pepper but because of spicy chili, while the sweet flavor is given by the brown sugar. In Java this food is commonly known as gado-gado.

Tipat santok is very easy to find. It is cheap and served fresh because it is prepared after being ordered.  Almost   at   every   village   street   people   can   enjoy   this   food   because   many merchants of this food are open until late evening. They usually sell at village roadside, traditional markets and in the aisles.

Basically the main ingredient is ketupat (rice bag) wrapped in young coconut leaf. However, in   later   development,   people   also   use   plastic   or   banana   leaves   as   the   wrapper.  In   the presentation, the tipat santok is served with various vegetables such as water spinach, sprouts, and cucumber. Optionally it is accompanied with tofu or tempeh and fried red beans.

In the meantime, the spice is made from fried peanut mixed with garlic, aromatic ginger, lime, palm sugar, fermented shrimp paste and fermented soy beans where all these herbs are then pulverized. After that, it is sprinkled with fried shallot. Now, it is ready to be served. One portion of tipat santok costs varies according to the venue and merchants.  At villages, a portion is sold for IDR 4,000 – IDR 5,000 while in urban areas ranging from IDR 6,000 to IDR 10,000.
