Nasi Buntut bakar ( BBQ Oxtail with rice)

Sup butut bakar

Back to normal life after Ramadan, enjoying lunch again, try a new recipe and eat them in the day time again, try to finish those cookies i made for "Lebaran"... This year i cooked some special food, and invite a few friends around in my house, feels good.

Last 2 years i couldn't really feel the celebrations marking the end of Muslim holy month Ramadan (Lebaran), because i was pregnant and breastfeeding my baby, so this year i felt so much energy to cook plenty of food.

About this menu, most Indonesian love oxtail, we usually cook them as a soup, but this time i found another recipe that look sooo luscious, so i started grinding the ingredients and imagining what is the taste will be like.
