Here we are for another week of Wanderfood Wednesday kindly hosted by Wanderlust and Lipstick
Sate is Indonesia’s version of the kebab. The Balinese usually eat sate at a warung (traditional food stall) or from a push-cart on the street. Where ever they’re eaten you can be sure that they’ll be delicious.
These sate were made at Bumi Bali Cooking School in Ubud, and they are not your ordinary warung or push-cart variety. Lilit means to wind around, and these delicious morsels are prepared by winding the sate mixture around one end of a wooden or lemongrass stick.
Lilit sate are served at special religious ceremonies. The number of sate sticks in a bundle may represent a family’s caste or position in society. The more sticks the higher the position, with the highest number being reserved for the high priest (as many as 11).
They were easy to make and even easier to eat!
