There are two version of Ayam Betutu or Balinese Spicy Braised Chicken: The drier Bangli version that wraps the chicken in coconut leaves, covers it with rice bran, which is then burned until cooked. It took a total of eleven hours of cooking time to get a good Bangli Betutu Chicken. The Gilimanuk version is a lot faster to make. The chicken is simmered in Balinese spices or basa genep until it absorbs all the liquid, resulting a moist betutu chicken. You may substitute cabe puyang or long pepper with black peppercorns.
