Nassi Receipe

Nassi is a Javanese dish that is very popular in French Guyana. If the rice is replaced by spaghetti it is called Bami. 

The ingredients to prepare a nassi

  • 5 chicken drumsticks

  • 1 half lemon

  • 3 sprigs of parsley

  • 2 sprigs of civet

  • 4 tablespoons of chiken marinade (you can use soy sauce or satay sauce instead)

  • 2 tablespoons of maggi

  • 3 or 4 pinches of salt

  • a little pepper

  • 2 teaspoons of ginger

  • 1/2 small onion 

Ingredients to prepare the cucumber

  • 1 cucumber

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 3 tablespoons of white vinegar (I ran out and used red wine vinegar)

  • 3 tablespoons of warm water

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

  • A pinch of salt

  • Rice (about 250g)

Preparation of the guianese nassi :

In a dish put your chicken drumsticks and put on top the lemon juice, finely chopped parsley and cive, chopped onion, salt, pepper, the 2 tablespoons of maggi, ginger and soy sauce. Mix well, wrap and chill for 3 to 4 hours. 

Heat oil in the bottom of a frying pan, add 2 tablespoons of sugar and when the oil is hot, brown the chicken.

Add the marinade and brown your chicken in the marinade over medium heat for 10 minutes, add a glass of water and continue cooking over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes for a little more sauce.

Peel and slice your cucumber into thin slices and put it in your serving dish.

In a bowl, mix the crushed garlic clove, vinegar, water, salt and sugar.

Pour this mixture over the cucumbers. Chill until ready to serve.

In a frying pan, put some oil and lightly fry 2 cloves of garlic and the rest of the onion finely chopped over medium heat.

Add a small piece of grated ginger and 4 tablespoons of soy. 

Fry the rice in the sauce over low heat until it is well colored.

Arrange the chicken drumstick on a plate with a little cooking sauce, a few slices of cucumber and the rice.

Enjoy !
