Things to know about Bajigur Recipe
West Java is one of the few regions in Indonesia where the temperature is colder, due to the overall altitude of the region. Bajigur is a warm drink that helped Sundanese deal with the cold since most people in Indonesia are prohibited from consuming alcoholic drinks. It is a combination of ginger, coconut milk, palm sugar, and coffee, which brings a warm feeling to the consumer’s body.
The word bajigur is often used as slang by the Sundanese people to mask swear words, (i.e., in Indonesian, the word “bastard” translates into bajingan, which sounds very similar to bajigur) as a way to express anger or frustration while not offending other people. It is similar to the feeling that you get after drinking bajigur, you feel warm (like when you are angry). This is a drink you would not want to miss!
