Javanese Chicken Curry with Bakwan Jagung and Sambal Bajak

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 and seafood are widely eaten there, with rice, corn and coconut being grown around the island. Here we have a rich chicken curry flavoured with turmeric, cassia and lemongrass served with crispy corn (jagung) fritters. There are over 300 varieties of sambal in Indonesia - no meal would be complete without the spicy condiment! - so on the side we've got a version called sambal bajak along with a popular Javanese salad known as urap sayur.
