Nasi ayam is one of our family favorite foods. My sister, my brother and I love this food a lot, and usually mami (our mother) will ordered this food from a small restaurant inside Bali's biggest traditional market. I believe the restaurant name is restaurant Honey, or more known as "Fong Sen" (the late owner of the restaurant), and they sell the most delicious nasi ayam ever!
I was so craving for their nasi ayam and attempted to make one myself. The result is delicious and it tasted similar to those that I always eat from "Fong Sen". Now, I'm proudly share this super simple, and easy recipe with you all :)
Ps. This is a big batch, and other than the sauce, I didn't measure the other ingredients, but you can see the amount of the foods from the picture.
