Pecel is a traditional Indonesian food from Java. The origin of pecel is still unknown, but most likely it is originated from Madiun or Ponorogo, East Java, because sate Ponorogo used the same kind of peanut sauce that is normally used in pecel. The sauce is also similar to the one used in gado-gado. In Malaysia, it is called as pecal which is introduced by the Javanese people.
