I had been craving for fried chicken with Indonesian spices, since my husband is a pesco-vegetarian (still eats fish and seafood), I barely eat chicken at home, only at work and they’re always seasoned with Western style. Last night, I finally made Ayam Goreng Bumbu Kemiri dan Serai (Candlenuts and Lemongrass Fried Chicken), served with warmed rice, sambal terasi (dried shrimp paste chili sambal), and vegetables.
