Spicy Thai Chicken




I love spicy food and even though we're experiencing a 'heat wave' now, I just can't resist this ..... heaty, maybe, but no worries, can make some 'leong sui', cooling drink tomorrow!



Ingredients
  • 650 gm free range chicken - cut into bite size
  • 100 gm shallots
  • 50 gm garlic
  • 1/2 inch of belacan - shrimp paste
  • 5 dried chillies - soaked till soft, seeded and cut
  • 2 stalks lemon grass - can be crushed or blended
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Some kaffir leaves
Preparation
  1. Wash the chicken pieces, drain, set aside.
  2. Blend together the shallots, garlic, belacan, dried chillies and lemon grass.
  3. Mix the blended ingredients into the chicken pieces together with the salt, fish sauce and brown sugar.  Leave it aside for a few hours.
  4. Put the marinated chicken pieces in a wok, add in the water, tear  some kaffir leaves into smaller pieces, cook uncovered under medium and low heat till meat is tender.
  5. Fine tune to taste and dish out onto serving plate.

~~~  Enjoy!  ~~~

    This is a very simplified version, only use fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass. Are these easily available in your Asian grocers?

    Oh, nowadays I insist on air-conditioned places whenever I eat out if not I'd rather 'ta-pau' and eat at home!

    Jeannie, I always try to make my dishes simple and easy, that's why I name my blog 'No-frills recipes'!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
