Kulat pelawan is a type of mushroom that grows wild at the foot of Pelawan trees, a native tree that can only be found in Bangka Belitung. It has a long stem and a small cap that is dark red when fresh, with complex smoky aroma and fiber like texture. The original lempah’s seasoning uses chicken bone trimmings to add richness into the dish.
Since Pelawan wild mushrooms are only found in Bangka island, you can substitute them with forestiere, a mix of dried wild mushroom.
