Our Indonesian Rendang Curry Powder recreates the bright, complex flavor of traditional rendang curry, blending warm, aromatic spices with mildly spicy chile powder and tangy tamarind.
Popular throughout Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, rendang is a richly spiced, slow-cooked curry dish. Its enticing flavor and aroma come from a unique mixture of herbs and spices, including coriander, cumin, ginger, and turmeric. Aromatics like garlic and onion add savory flavor, lemongrass and ginger add brightness, and tangy tamarind adds a subtle sour note. Rendang, which is considered to be a “dry curry,” is cooked slowly until most of the sauce’s liquid has evaporated and the meat is very tender, resulting in a dark, thick, caramelized paste that coats the meat. This cooking technique, along with the dish’s heavy use of spice, was an important way to preserve meat in the tropical Indonesian climate before refrigeration became available. As a result, rendang remains a popular dish in the region’s cuisine. Most often cooked with beef or lamb as the main protein component and served with rice, rendang is traditionally served on special occasions and to honor guests.
