Rijstapel is a Javanese curry, in spite of its Dutch name. It consists of a sauté chicken, cooked with numberless condiments and herbs, with a curry sauce, accompanied by innumerable small dishes containing many kinds of ingredients, all of which have been cooked separately: plain boiled rice, fried aubergines, tamarinds, the pulp of which has been made into a jam; grated coconut, some of which has been roasted, some soaked in vinegar; tomatoes, mangoes, dried fish and salt fish.
