Semur ayam is a chicken and potato dish stewed in spices, nutmeg, and kecap manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce). The taste is very bold, the chicken and potatoes tender and succulent, and you will want to mop up all the sauce with a big bowl of steamed white rice. So, what I made is originally called "beef semur". There also "chicken semur", "tofu semur" and "egg semur". Same herbs, spices, and seasoning, just different protein.
