Semur Ayam / Indonesian Chicken Stew

{{totalReview}}
Semur or smoor in Dutch, is a stew dish that is a must have during the festive season. This wholesome, earthy dish is commonly made using beef but this recipe is a variation of the traditional dish, and uses chicken instead. Tuck into a good Semur, with its perfect balance of savouriness and sweetness that comes from using Indonesian sweet soy sauce, and delicious crunch from the fried shallots that deck this festive treat.
