Rica Rica is a one of typical dishes of Minahasan people who live in North Sulawesi. Many Indonesians also call them as Manadonese, refer to the capital city of North Sulawesi province. You can make this dish either with chicken or fish. One of the important ingredients of this recipe is daun pandan or "Pandan leaf". I have seen it once here in Asia shop in Germany but when I was due to make this recipe it wasn't available. I deeply regret of it's absence this time but I will make it up for the next one ;-). Nevertheless you need no worry, without "Pandan leaf", it still taste good ;-). In original recipe is 1 free range chicken is used but I made it half since it was too much. If preferred you can also add potatoes in it, like I do.

Es ist sehr schwer daun pandan zu finden...aber es geht auch ohne.
