Ayam Golek

Ayam Golek

1.5kg chicken

1 tsp salt

200ml thick coconut milk

Ground spices

200g shallots

4 cloves garlic

3 stalks lemon grass

20g galangal

15g ginger

20g fresh turmeric

120g fresh red chillies

1 tsp white peppercorns

1 tsp cumin

2 tsp fennel


1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

½ tsp monosodium glutamate

Chop the chicken into 4 quarter pieces and 7score a few diagonal cuts on each piece. Rub with salt.

Combine coconut milk with the ground spice ingredients in a saucepan over a medium low heat. Bring to a low simmering boil. Add seasoning.

Dish out and combine with the chicken pieces. Leave aside to marinate for at least 1-2 hours.

Grill the chicken pieces (for an authentic taste, grill over burning embers) and brush with remaining marinade when grilling, until meat is cooked through and lightly browned.
