Authentic Indonesian spices and herbs. Indonesian cuisine is rich in herbs and spices. Known throughout the world as the ‘Spice Islands’, the Indonesian islands of Maluku contributed to the introduction of its native spices to world cuisine. Pala (nutmeg), cengkih (clove), daun pandan (pandan leaves), keluak (Pangium edule), and lengkuas (galangal) are considered as the native and authentic spices of Indonesia. Whilst some spices such as chilli, shallot, garlic, pepper, ginger, turmeric, and galangal can be found throughout the country, several spices are only found in a specific region. The Western region uses more spices than the Eastern part of Indonesia (retrieved from https://www.suara.com/lifestyle/2018/05/10/130000/bumbu-masak-asli-indonesia-diekspor-sampai-ke-amerika)
