This is the non-spicy Indonesian chicken curry, very well-known as Opor Ayam. The look is whiter than the usual curry that we normally know and I love eating this with vermicelli. Because the soup is relatively light, it can be also served like noodle soup. Enjoy trying out this recipe and happy cooking! 🙂
