Jump to Recipe

Oseng Cumi is an Indonesian stir-fry dish made with squid as the main ingredient. The word “oseng” refers to the cooking technique of stir-frying with spices, while “cumi” means squid in the Indonesian language.

The dish typically includes a variety of aromatic herbs and spices such as garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, and chili peppers. The squid is first cleaned and sliced into bite-sized pieces before being marinated with the spices. The marinated squid is then stir-fried in a wok or frying pan until it is cooked through and tender.

Oseng Cumi can be served as a main course with steamed rice, or as a side dish with other Indonesian dishes such as Nasi Goreng or Gado-Gado. It is a popular street food in Indonesia and is enjoyed by locals and tourists alike for its flavorful taste and unique texture.
