Ayam Masak Kicap 马来香辣酱油鸡

Recently, Asia Food Channel fb page is featuring Ayam Panggang Kicap Indonesia (Indonesia grilled soy sauce chicken)  by Chef Yuda Bustara. I am so tempted to try it soon, but before that I am preparing the local style Malay ayam masak kicap. I've been cooking it for several times and it was well received by my family members & friends. And here I decided to post it out on my humble little blog today.  What I did was I fried the chicken meat till golden brown, before braised it with sweet dark soy sauce and spices. To make it a little more interesting, I added in some chili boh (dried chili paste).  Just imagine how interesting the gravy going to taste !

Ingredients :
2 whole chicken thigh, cut into 6 portion
1 cup  corn flour
1 large onion, sliced
3 green chilies, seeded & cut into 3
1 cup  thick sweet soy sauce
2 TB  light soy sauce
1 cup   water
1 TB   peppercorn, crashed
1 TB  sugar (omitted)

Ingredients for blended paste :
1 TB   chili boh / dried chili paste
3  shallots, sliced
4  garlic cloves
1/2 "  fresh ginger
1/2 cup  cooking oil
(put everything into electrical blender grind into paste)

Note : for dried chilies,user, soaked 6 dried chilies to soften then grind together with other ingredients. For medium flavour, add another one tablespoon of chili boh.

Method :
(1)  coat chicken meat with corn flour then fry till golden brown, set aside.
(2)  preheat wok with 1 cup cooking oil then stir in blended paste and saute till mixture turned red and fragrant.
(3)  then add in sliced onion & green chilies, continue saute for another 2 minutes or till fragrant.

(4)  now, add in thick sweet soy sauce, light soy sauce, peppercorn and water, and bring it to boil.

(5)  add in fried chicken and let to simmer over medium heat till gravy became thicken. It takes more or less about 15 minutes. Finally, serve warm with rice or noodle.

The gravy absolutely fantastic ! It tastes sweet & spicy with some really interesting aroma. This is a very flavourful dish and its best to serve with white rice and pickled vegetables. I personally prefer sweeter gravy but hubby not ! So, I omitted the sugar.  Hope you guys will love it too ! Have fun everyone.
