Balinese lawar

A traditional Balinese cuisine dish served with rice and other dishes, lawar is a mixture of vegetables and minced meat flavored with a lot of spices. It consists of shredded unripe jackfruit, young banana flower, a liberal amount of pork rind bits, raw pig blood. These are mashed with a plethora of herbs such as lemon grass, lime leaves, shallots, and garlic.

Lawar now has become  increasingly popular among  Balinese people and foreigners alike because it is often served as a daily  side dish, besides being  eaten after carrying out ceremonies.
