That's it,Yogya Fried chicken is ready.Its an Indonesian Dish.I had this book,The Food Of Asia,wanted to try out different dishes from Asia(tried a little,to be on safer side :-)) )So,tried and it was yummyyyyyyy....Actually after trying out and tasting this,I felt,its just like,deep frying the left over chicken from the thick chicken gravy.Its a simple version of this dish.There were 2-3 items which i dint have and I don't know where we get,so omitted it,but still,it was finger licking tasty :-)
