"Kecap" or "ketjap" is a cognate of ketchup, and means any fermented sauce. "Manis" means sweet. Kecap manis is a syrupy thick, sweet soy sauce incorporating the rich, caramel sweetness of palm sugar. It is an important umami element in several signature Indonesian dishes including nasi goreng and mee goreng (Indonesian fried rice and fried noodles) and is as popular a sauce with saté as is peanut sauce. Great, either alone, or in combination with chile sauce, as a last minute glaze for grilled meat, poultry or seafood.
