Things to know about Ayam Goreng Kalasan Recipe

This dish originated from the Kalasan region of Yogyakarta in the southern part of Central Java. This Kalasan-style fried chicken is first pioneered by a local housewife-turned-cook named Mbok Berek in 1952. The use of brown sugar and various other spices in the spice marinade for the chicken is what differentiates this dish from the other.
