From "The Encyclopedia of Asian Cooking" Indonesian section by Sri Owen

* Available at Asian markets and in the Asian section of some supermarkets. If you can't find them don't worry, the recipe will still work OK. The Javanese seem to like their chicken pretty well done and chewy. I prefer mine a little more tender and fry it for a bit less than ten minutes. It has been a while since I made this, but I believe about seven minutes is enough for me. This chicken is delicious and also good cold. Make lots of it.
