NYONYO's comments

"There are three additional vegetables needed to make really authentic Jakarata gado-gado. 1. Jackfruit 2. Bitter melon 3. Boiled corn Shrimp paste is a must. If we do not use shrimp paste, the aroma will be authentic. Looking at the video, she is up to Jakarta style gado-gado, not West Java gado-gado. In the Jakarta gado-gado, chinese spinach has never been part of the ingredients. You can skip that particular vegetable. Fried shallot and crackers are not optional. I'd rather not eat gado-gado without those two."
