Yeaaaa......still in our main menu of the week......CHICKEN.......soooo, Indonesian Food Style is became my great intention for this week.
Actually I had cooked this food few months ago, and this time is my second time cooked Ayam Bumbu Rujak. As another Indonesian dishes, this one is tasted spicy and using more than one herbs. And because of I don't have any red chilli at the moment, so I did a tricky way, I combined green chilli with chilli sauce, so at the end, my ayam bumbu rujak still looked red :).
Unfortunately, it is a little bit too spicy for my hubby, though he told me he can eat it, but I can see his lips and face are became so red....(oughhh so sorry dear....).
So, do u dare to try how spicy it is? ;)
