The foods of East-Timor

The cuisine of East Timor is a blend of regional and foreign influences, mainly from Southeast Asia and Portugal.
Some of the common ingredients are pork, fish, rice, corn, legumes, tamarind, basil, and tropical fruits.
Here are some examples of traditional dishes from East Timor: Batar da’an: A vegetarian dish of mung beans, squash, and corn cooked with garlic and onions.
Ikan pepes: A fish dish wrapped in banana leaves with a spicy paste of turmeric, tomatoes, shrimp paste, lemon basil, and other herbs.
Bibingka: A grilled and layered coconut cake, often served as a dessert or snack.
Pudim de leite: A Portuguese-style custard pudding, flavored with vanilla and caramel.
If you are feeling adventurous, you can also try ai-manas, a very hot chili sauce made with bird’s eye chilies, garlic, lime, and salt. It is usually served with rice and meat dishes, but be careful, it is not for the faint-hearted!
