Spicery Highlights for 2: Javanese Chicken Curry/South African Braai
The Indonesian island of Java is home to over 145 million people - a diverse population made up of mostly indigenous cultures. Over 90% of the population is Muslim so chicken is widely eaten there, with rice and coconut being grown around the island. Here we have a rich chicken curry flavoured with turmeric, cassia and lemongrass served with sambal - no Indonesian meal would be complete without the spicy condiment! - along with a popular Javanese salad known as urap sayur.
In South Africa, braai (or BBQ) is so popular there's even a day dedicated to it, when people come together around the open flames of the grill to celebrate their rich cultural heritage. Here the traditional flavours of the braai are showcased in this delicious meal - we’ve got seasoned steaks served with a bean stew flavoured with curry powder known as chakalaka, potato salad and a carrot sambal salad.
