what can I use as a kecap manis substitute?
- Anonymous9 years agoFavorite Answer
Kecap Manis is an intensely dark brown, syrupy-thick Indonesian sauce similar to, but with a sweeter, more complex flavor than soy sauce. Kecap manis is sweetened with palm sugar and seasoned with various ingredients, which generally include garlic and star anise.
On the other hand, soy sauce is a dark, salty sauce made by fermenting boiled soybeans and roasted wheat or barley.
Althought I would really not suggest substituting one for the other but if you really must use Soy Sauce in place of Kecap Manis, you would probably need to add a bit of sugar to your recipe to compensate for the lack of the same in Soy Sauce.

Yes, but Kecap is sweeter than regular soy sauce. You might want to add some sugar into your soy sauce to get a similar flavor.

You can use regular soy but you will need to add honey or sugar so that it comes close to kecap manis.
