As I remember gado-gado cemara is known by adding cashew nuts as peanut sauce instead of peanuts.

You should try it one day, and you will find the difference. Cashew nut sauce tastes better than peanut sauce

Hi andaliman, that is right, thanks for your suggestions, some people said used half cashew and half nuts. Thank you :)
