* Indonesian relish with lime, chili and basil -- This recipe comes from the "Time/Life Pacific and Southeast Asian Cooking." I've been unable to find a recipe even remotely resembling it in any other Indonesian cookbook. I like to cross-reference recipes and learn where they came from, but only the Time/Life reporters seem to have found this one. In any event, it's quite wonderful. Not for the faint of heart.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 5 minutes preparation, 2 hours sitting.
: Precision: no need to measure, but count the chili peppers.
