Kale in Coconut Milk

Kali in Coconut Milk
Serves 4

I was craving for some cassava leaves curry, unfortunately cassava leafs are very rare here in Japan. So, I googled to find inspirations from other fellow Indonesians living abroad and most of them refer ‘Kale’as substitute. Oh,this is great, Kale is in season and it was delivered by my grocery store today. You see, I subscribe to a service offered by my grocery store. For 980Y per week, they will bring a box with in season vegetables directly from the farmers. I really like this service because the vegetables is a surprise. Moreover, because it comes directly from the farmers, they give a lot for that value. Ok, back to the kale curry innovation, well I loved it. It was quite satisfactory I may say, tasty.
