Plecing kangkung is an Indonesian spicy water spinach dish from the island of Lombok. Plecing kangkung is made from blanched water spinach leaves (Ipomoea aquatica) and served cold with plecing sambal made from ground red chili pepper, shallot, garlic, bird's eye chili, candlenut, kaffir lime, shrimp paste, salt, and sugar.[1] As a side for the Lomboknese dish Ayam taliwang, plecing kangkung is also usually served with additional ingredients such as bean sprouts, string beans, fried peanuts, and urap's grated spicy coconut dressing. Outside Lombok, plecing kangkung is also commonly served in the neighboring island Bali.
