Crunchy Teriyaki Chicken Rice bowl / Ayam saus teriyaki

Selam everybody... Merhaba from Turkey

Suddenly missed and wanted to eat this food. This menu reminds me on typical menu of Japanese restaurant with a taste of Indonesia. If you live in Indonesia you will understand and know exactly the unique and characteristic of foods I mean. In Bursa, city I live now, as far as I know, it's hard to find a Japanese fast food restaurant .. maybe in starred hotel provides one or two Japanese food in their menu, mostly sushi-and I don't really like the taste...

Well, to ease sense of longing of Japanese food (with Indonesian taste), this Chicken rice bowl is enough to treat it .. Let's try it also in your kitchen. It won't disappoint you ...

Since this is my first attempt to make it, I didn't measure the exact amount of some ingredient... it's just simply according to my taste based on how it's real taste on my memory.

Jajan Pasar "Klepon" (Indonesian traditional sweet dumpling snack)

Jajan means snack. Pasar = traditional market. In old time mostly you can find this food in traditional market in early morning or evening. But now it's getting easy to find it in any street corner or alley in my country.
"Klepon" , is one kind of Indonesian traditional snack. It's dumpling  made from glutinous rice flour with palm sugar filling, wrapped in fresh shredded coconut. 
Yes, since I'm in my homeland, I want to make this in my kitchen with real traditional and fresh ingredients (no substitute) like "Pandan Suji" leaves which gives natural green color and fragrance. Also fresh shredded coconut that rarely I can find in Turkey. But if you can not access to fresh shredded coconut, just try to steam dried one before use.

have a try and experience this folk snack and "taste the Indonesia "

Oliebollen recipe (Dutch Donuts)

 Selam evrybody...Merhaba from Turkey.

Oliebollen is a fried food-similiar to donut flavor containing raisins and apple slices, originally from Dutch. Oliebollen also known in Indonesia and are often listed in an old book recipe cause it's very popular also in Indonesia as one of Dutch food's heritage . In Netherlands, this food is traditionally eaten on New Year's Eve (But I love them in my breakfast with my hot Tukish tea). 

Oliebollen made ​​by frying dough in hot oil until lightly browned. Dough made ​​from flour, eggs, yeast, salt, and milk. The dough is left for about 1 hour and fried, then dusted with powdered sugar.

Known as sate in Indonesian (and pronounced similar to the English), Indonesia is the home of satay, and satay is a widely renowned dish in almost all regions of Indonesia and is considered the national dish and one of Indonesia's best dishes. Satays, in particular, are a staple in Indonesian cuisine, served everywhere from street carts to fine dining establishments, as well as in homes and at public gatherings. As a result, many variations have been developed throughout the Indonesian Archipelago. In Indonesia, there are some restaurants that specialized in serving various kinds of satay and present it as their specialty, such as Sate Ponorogo Restaurant, Sate Blora Restaurant, and also chains of Sate Khas Senayan restaurants, previously known as Satay House Senayan. In Bandung, the West Java Governor's office is popularly called Gedung Sate (Indonesian: Satay building) to refer to the satay-like pinnacle on its roof.

Indonesia has the richest variations of satay in the world. The satay variants in Indonesia usually named after the region it originated, the meats, parts, or ingredients its uses, also might be named after the process or method of cooking.
