Serundeng is a typical Indonesian food that is often used as a side dish of rice. Serundeng is made from grated fried coconut until brownish yellow with spices such as onion, chili, garlic, onion, coriander, turmeric, sugar, tamarind, bay leaf, lime leaves and galangal. 

These spices are crushed before use. Serundeng is usually served with fried beef slices, a dish of meat serundeng, or sprinkled on soto, ketan, or burasa (Makassar food) to add to the taste of the cuisine.

In Malaysia the term serunding refers to shredded beef or chicken, Malaysian shredded this can be mixed with grated coconut like serundeng Indonesia or not. While in Indonesia serundeng clearly refers to fried grated coconut, except in Riau Islands which can also refer to abon beef or chicken, even mangrove abon.

However, in West Sumatra slightly different. The term serundeng is not referring to food with the basic ingredients of this coconut. Serundeng in West Sumatra consists of potatoes and sweet potatoes are cut into small pieces and nuts are then given spices and fried. It tastes delicious and of course.
