IIndonesian & Malaysian cuisine rely heavily on candlenuts as a base and thickener for spice pastes, which are the foundation of the cuisine. This includes many of the various rendangs and sambals.

Some potential replacements are...

  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Raw cashews
  • Roasted Cashews
  • Brazil nuts
