The Islamic festival of Eid al-Fitr, known locally as Lebaran, is celebrated with much joy and festivity. People buy new clothes to wear, travel back to family villages and break the long fasting of Ramadan with a feast. Chicken poached in a creamy, luscious sauce is traditional, as well as being a Javanese favourite year round. With delicate spicing rather than chilli heat, opor ayam is perfect for those who like their curries both mild and enchanting.
