Things to know about Nasi Tim Ayam Jamur Recipe

Nasi Tim is a dish that was invented by Chinese-Indonesian as comfort food. Contrary to popular belief, this dish can only be found in Indonesia and doesn’t exist in China, just like how Hainan Rice originated from Singapore instead of Taiwan.

This dish’s soft texture and heartwarming flavor make the dish perfect for those who are recovering from illness or are feeling under the weather. The flavors of this dish are mild and not overwhelming, making it easy to consume for both babies and elderlies.

The mild but pleasant flavor of chicken is met by the umami flavors from the shiitake mushroom. Hints of ginger further improve the overall enjoyment of eating Nasi Tim Ayam Jamur.

The chicken broth is full of flavors from the chicken feet and bones, rich in collagen and connective tissues broken down into amino acids that produce an umami flavor. If you feel down or under the weather, this dish will surely comfort you.
