Ayam Bawang, Garlic Chicken Java Style
Ayam bawang Garlic chicken
1whole chicken (medium size)
8 cloves garlic
3cm ginger (or use two teaspoon dry ginger powder)
1cm turmeric (or use one teaspoon dry turmeric powder)
To taste salt
Wash the chicken with salt under running water (to get rid of the slime and excessive unwanted fat) cut into four and set aside.
Grate the garlic, turmeric and ginger; mix well with the water and boil them until bubbling; add the chicken and salt and reduce the heat. Simmer until the liquid has completely reduced.
Now you can fry your chicken or for healthy style you can grill them just until they turn into golden brown. Note; the chicken was already cooked in step 2. Serve with chilli sambal/sauce and hot steamed rice.
