Gudeg is a delicious authentic traditional food from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The main ingredient to make gudeg  is boiled young jackfruit with palm sugar, and spices. While the brown color that appears is the effect of the use of teak leaves when boiling young jackfruit.

Gudeg usually served with white rice, chicken, hard boiled eggs, tofu and / or tempeh, and a stew made of crispy beef skins (sambal goreng krecek). Gudeg divided into two types, dry and wet gudeg. Dry gudeg usually serve with little coconut milk, while wet gudeg use more coconut milk.

Although the most common gudeg from Yogyakarta, but gudeg also easily found in Surakarta (solo). Gudeg of Jogja usually sweet, dry and red with the addition of teak leaves. While Solo gudeg usually more spicy, juicy and thick with lots of coconut milk and colored white because teak leaves are generally not added.

Because gudeg is closely related to Yogyakarta, it is no wonder the city was dubbed as the city of gudeg.
