 WRAPPED IN BANANA LEAF

Ingredients:

  • A half of regular chicken, cut into 7 pieces
  • Some sprigs of basil
  • 1 pcs tomato, slice into 7 pieces
  • 1 cm galangal
  • 1 cm ginger
  • 1 cm turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 4 cloves shallots
  • MSG-Flavor Enhancer to taste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp candlenuts
  • 2 pcs limes
  • 4 tbs cooking oil for sautéing
  • Banana  leaves/ aluminum foil to wrap, cut into 7 pieces

 

 

 

PREPARATIONS:

  1. Marinate the chicken with limes and set aside for a while, then wash it cleanly.
  2. Grind all the ingredients, and sauté them until the smells is good.
  3. Put in chicken, add 3 tbs water, and mix until it dried.
  4. Prepare the banana leaves/aluminum foil to wrap. Sun-dried the banana leaves until the leaves are withered (this is not necessary if you use Aluminum foil).
  5. Put the basils on the each of banana leaves/aluminum foil
  6. Put 1 cut of chicken on the basils, and put the basils again on the chicken. So the chicken is coated with basils, and then put 1 slice of tomato on the top of it.
  7. Wrap and roll the chicken neatly and fasten the edges with toothpicks. (If you use aluminum foil, just crimp the edges to seal the foil pocket).
  8. Repeat the step 6 and 7. One wrap for one cut of chicken.
  9. Steam for 40 minutes.
  10. And the dish is ready to serve.

I happen to know all the ingredients, but I would guess that most people don't know what kemiri nuts are.

Maybe put in a suggestion that they could be interchanged with macademia nuts?

 

As for the banana leaves: Maybe describe a bit more on how to use them?

- They can be sun dried as you suggest, or heated over fire, or even dropped in boiling water to make them pliable (tried that the other day and it works).

- Cut them to size, either rectangular or round, but make sure the main vein is not in it

- Make sure the leaves are free of pesticides.....

 

Hope that helps you?

 

By the way, my dad was born in Indonesia and Indonesian food is one of my favourites :D
