Nonya Chicken

I made this dish a few weeks ago and completely forgotten about it until I found some of the pictures in my file. I saw this wonderful recipe from Jun's blog and I just have to try it out and I was not disappointed. This dish turns out really delicious.

Ingredients :

500gm chicken
1 medium size onions - quartered
some curry leaves
1 red chili - slice thinly
1 green chili - slice thinly
1 tomato - quartered
1 egg
1 tbsp of cornstarch

To be blended

1 lemon grass
1 tsp of turmeric powder
1 clove of garlic
1 shallot
1" of galangal or ginger

For the sauce - combined

1 tbsp of plum sauce
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tbsp of tomato ketchup
2 tbsp of water
salt and pepper to taste

1) Cut chicken into bite size pieces and marinate with the blended ingredients, egg and cornstarch and set aside for 15 minutes.
2) Heat up some oil and fry the chicken until golden brown and drain off excess oil on paper towel. Remove oil from pan and leave about 1 tablespoon.
3) Add in onions, chilies and curry leaves and stir fry until fragrant. Add in chicken, tomato and the sauce. Continue to stir fry until sauce thicken.
4) Serve with warm rice.
