Ayam bakar Padang (Padang-style grilled chicken) is a Ramadhan special at Cinnamon restaurant, Mandarin Oriental hotel, Central Jakarta.

“The dish comes with a spicy flavor and a hint of sourness,” says the restaurant's chef de cuisine Ciptoroso.

As long as you have all the ingredients, cooking ayam bakar Padang is relatively easy. However, to make it even more delicious, Ciptoroso suggests home cooks to marinate the chicken overnight.

Below is the ayam bakar Padang recipe as made by Ciptoroso. (kes)
