Tuturuga: A Bilingual Post for Project Food Blog Challenge 2

Indonesia adalah negara yang kaya akan keanekaragaman. Salah satunya adalah makanan, dengan ciri khas masing-masing daerah.

Indonesia is an archipelago with more than 17,000 islands, located in South East Asia, that has a wide range of diversity. One of them is the traditional food of each region.

Aku, yang suka jalan-jalan dan makan-makan pun belum habis mencicipi atau mencoba memasak makanan-makanan tradisional Indonesia. Untuk tantangan kedua dalam Project Food Blog 2010, aku mencoba membuat Tuturuga Ayam. Meskipun aku nggak lolos ke ronde kedua, paling tidak aku bisa menikmati makanan ini.

Even that I love exploring amazing places and experiencing wonderful tastes, I haven’t yet tasted or cooked all of Indonesian foods. For the second challenge of Project Food Blog 2010, I tried to cook Tuturuga chicken. A traditional dish from Manado, which located about 1,300 kilometers from Jakarta. Infact that I didn’t make it to the next round, at least I could enjoy the dish.

Welcome to My World!

Bahan-bahannya:
6 siung bawang putih
6 buah bawang merah
5 buah cabe merah
2 centimeter kunyit
2 centimeter jahe
2 sendok makan minyak goreng
1 batang sereh, geprek
1 lembar daun salam
2 lembar daun jeruk purut, iris tipis
seperempat buah jeruk nipis, ambil airnya
setengah ekor ayam, potong menjadi 6 bagian, rebus dengan 2 gelas air hingga empuk
segenggam daun kemangi
150 mililiter santan
sedikit garam
sedikit lada putih bubuk
sedikit gula pasir

Cara membuatnya:
1. Haluskan bawang putih, bawang merah, cabe merah, kunyit, dan jahe.
2. Panaskan minyak goreng dengan api sedang.
3. Tumis bumbu halus bersama sereh, daun salam dan daun jeruk purut hingga harum.
4. Tambahkan ayam beserta air rebusannya.
5. Tambahkan daun kemangi, santan, garam, lada putih bubuk dan gula pasir. Aduk rata.
6. Tutup. Biarkan selama 1 atau 2 menit.
7. Tambahkan air jeruk nipis. Aduk lagi, kemudian angkat dan sajikan.

The ingredients:
6 pieces garlic
6 pieces shallot
5 pieces red chili pepper
2 centimeters turmeric
2 centimeters ginger
2 table spoons oil
a piece of lemon grass
a piece of bay leaf
2 pieces of kaffir lime leaf, sliced thinly
a quarter lime, squeezed
a half chicken, divided into 6 portions, stewed in 2 cups of water until tender
a handful of lemon basil leaf
150 mililiters coconut milk
a pinch of salt
a pinch of white pepper powder
a pinch of sugar

The directions:
1. Crush garlic, shallot, red chili pepper, turmeric and ginger, using stone mortar.
2. Medium-low heat oil.
3. Sautée crushed spices with lemon grass, bay leaf, and kaffir lime leaves until the aroma comes out.
4. Add chicken stew, all the way with the liquid.
5. Add lemon basil leaves, coconut milk, salt, white pepper powder and sugar. Stir well.
6. Cover. Wait for a minute or two.
7. Drop lime squeeze.Stir again, then remove and serve.

I thought ayam bacem was the dish with the most numerous spices that I ever cooked. I was kinda lazy to try complicated dish. But now I dare. I can taste the hot sensation of chili pepper, embraced with the smoothness of coconut milk, and closed by the fresh aroma of lemon basil. I’m proud to be the part of rich tasted Indonesia!
