Preparing a feast for Ied celebration need careful planning and partial execution. Usually she shops for meat and poultry a week before the D day. And then she cooked them and freeze them in packages, to capture the freshness inside them and easy to thaw in small portion when needed.
I was following one of her shopping day for poultry to the wet market near my parents house.
She chose the living chicken, then the merchant decapitate them mercifully (to comply with Halal requirement), cleaned and broke it down as ordered. Can’t be more fresh than this!
I want to share the ambiance of local traditional wet market in Indonesia looks like. Remember, this market is located at Jakarta the capitol city. So you might expect something much more rustic feeling and wet ground. Although there are nice and dry traditional market too.
