Ayam Masak Merah

This dish is a bit different from the Malay ayam masak merah we get back home but it does taste quite similar to it.

Blended ingredients :

1" of ginger
3 shallots
3 cloves of garlic
1 stalk of lemon grass

Blend all the above ingredients and set aside.

3 pieces of chicken breast - cut to bite size pieces and marinate with some salt and pepper
1 large onion - slice thinly
2 large tomatoes - cut in chunks
1 cinnamon stick
2 potatoes - cut to bite size pieces
1/2 cup of green peas or edamame
4 tbsp of chili sauce
Salt, pepper and sugar to taste


1) Heat up frying pan with some oil and stir fry chicken on high heat until slightly brown and set aside.
2) Leave some oil in the pan and saute the blended ingredients and cinnamon stick until fragrant.
3) Add in onion, chili sauce, chicken, tomatoes and potatoes. Add some water and simmer until potatoes and chicken is cooked. Lastly add in some green peas or edamame.
4) Check seasoning and serve with warm rice.

Delia, memang susah kan duduak juah dari home country. We don't have the luxury to makan or beli kat luar so we have to cook everything ourselves :)
