Opor ayam putih is a traditional Indonesian dish that is often served during special occasions such as weddings, religious holidays or family gatherings. The dish consists of chicken cooked in a creamy coconut milk sauce with fragrant spices. In this article, we will guide you through the process of making opor ayam putih in easy-to-follow steps.


To make opor ayam putih, you will need the following ingredients:
  • 1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 5 shallots, minced
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 lemongrass stalks, bruised
  • 1 tsp of coriander powder
  • 1 tsp of cumin powder
  • 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbsp of vegetable oil


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and shallots to the pot and sauté until fragrant.
  3. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, and salt to the pot and stir until combined.
  4. Stir in the chicken pieces and cook until browned on all sides.
  5. Add the coconut milk, bay leaves, and bruised lemongrass stalks to the pot.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 45 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked and tender.
  7. Remove the bay leaves and lemongrass stalks from the pot.
  8. Using a spoon, skim off any excess oil from the surface of the sauce.
  9. Adjust the seasoning to taste.


Opor ayam putih is best served with steamed rice, lontong (compressed rice cake), or ketupat (rice cake wrapped in coconut leaves). You can also serve it with some sliced cucumbers and tomatoes on the side for a refreshing crunch.


  • For a richer and creamier sauce, you can use coconut cream instead of coconut milk.
  • Make sure to bruise the lemongrass stalks before adding them to the pot to release their flavor.
  • If you prefer a spicier dish, you can add some chopped chili peppers to the sauce.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
