  1. Would prefer recipes with ingredients we can actually source. I’m assuming most members cannot get Jamu.

  2. Hi Janie, Jamu consists of ingredients that are readily available most Asian grocery stores: turmeric root, ginger, tamarind, and filtered water. Don‘t forget to share your home-made delights with us on our social channels. Happy cooking! Cheers
