The name means simply ‘fried chicken’, and that is all it is. The marinade, however, gives it a characteristically Indonesian flavour.


  • 1 medium-sized chicken or chicken portions for 4 people


Marinate the pieces of chicken in this mixture for 2 hours, turning them from time to time.

Strain the chicken, so that the marinade drips away from it. Then deep-fry the portions, 4 or 5 at a time.

Chicken fried in this way is excellent with Nasi Goreng.
