Basa Gede Oil from Mozaic Restaurant

750ml Prep Time 12 hours   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:


Once you have made this oil, you may find it hard to go back to regular salad oil. Just saying. I have been using this for EVERYTHING. On top of Turmeric Eggs, avocado, as a toasting oil for potatoes, on bruschetta, salads, fish, for confit. It is completely amazing and I am loving it. This oil is one of the recipes from the very amazing Mozaic Restaurant in Ubud, Bali. When in Bali, please go there. Incredible food. Seriously!

IN the meantime, channel your inner chef and make a batch of this. And then just dream of going to Bali!
