1. Guacamole
Pronounced as gwah-kuh-moh-lee, this sauce came from the Aztecs in Mexico. Some recipes includes tomato, onions, garlic and other seasoning. But we recommend you to the the traditional sauce, just plain old guacamole with sea salt and black pepper. (Recipe here)

2. Hummus
Hummus is a popular Arabic dip. It is traditionally made from chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic. We’ve made a simplified version using 5 ingredients and in 5 minutes. (Recipe here)

Pisang goreng bermadu (fried banana with honey) is a common snack in Indonesia. Honey goes incredibly well with it.
