Ayam Ingkung (Javanese syle yellow roast chicken)



Uuughhh... i can't decided which picture should be on top, they all looks good and I'm so satisfied with my pics result, i was taken those pics on the backyard of my house, because the lights just perfect, although my camera is just the small one, i was dream to have a professional camera one day (could be soon too, he he).
But I'm thinking, am i just gonna waste my money for that kind of camera?, is it gonna be useful gadget for me?. I just don't know the answer, pls help me decide...
OK enough dreaming...
Now, lets talk about this yummy, delicious chicken. Like i mentioned before I'll started to cook more Indonesian food, but i started from Javanese food (My Dad came from Middle of Java), I'm a chicken lover, and many dishes in Java that using chicken as a main ingredients, so its perfect food style for me.
Later i want to try Sundanese food too (My Mom is Sundanese), but we have limited ingredients here (not common and so difficult to find).
