Lotek is the West Javanese variety of gado gado. It is a salad of fresh raw or blanched vegetables, served cold or lukewarm. To many Indonesians, lotek is a complete main course, eaten with rice. Of course, this exotic vegetable salad can also be combine with other dishes. A tasty combination of vegetables for lotek is: white or Chinese cabbage, kangkung (water spinach) or spinach, yardlong beans or string beans and bean sprouts. The vegetables are blanched and then potatoes, cooked and diced, are added. Then, the warm or lukewarm lotek sauce is poured over as a dressing. Due to the addition of various spices, the lotek sauce is spicier than the sauces for gado gado and petjel. Fried onions (preferably shallots) and whole or halved roasted peanuts are sprinkled over the sauce. Garnish the lotek dish with slices of cucumber. Lotek is a favourite dish among vegetarians.
