Chicken Tikka ala Dhi October 12, 2007

Filed under: CHICKEN — pinkytoes @ 3:08 pm

Bahan:

* 20 potong sayap ayam – aku lebih suka sayap ayam karena gampang menyerap bumbu

* 1 ruas jahe segar, parut

* 8 siung bawang putih, parut (bisa ditambah/dikurangi jika suka)

* 2 sdt cabai merah bubuk

* 3 sdt curry powder

* 1 butir lemon, peras airnya

* 60 gram garam masala – karena nggak punya aku ganti dengan racikan sendiri
   ( 3 btr star anise, pala, 6 btr cardamom kering, 2 btr cengkeh, 1 sdt kayu manis bubuk – giling halus)

* 1 sdm jinten sangrai

* 1 cangkir cream cheese

* 1/2  cangkir yoghurt tawar

Cara memasak:

1.) Cuci sayap ayam dan sayat-sayat spy bumbu gampang menyerap
      Bubuhi dengan perasan lemon, jahe, racikan garam masala & bawang putih. Biarkan selama kurang lebih 1 jam
      *untuk ayam berdaging lebih tebal, diamkan lebih lama supaya bumbu lbh menyerap

2.) Campurkan cream cheese dan yoghurt – tempatkan dalam wadah tahan panas & di-oven. Beres!
     Karena di apartmentku minimalis, nggak ada oven, jadi dimasak dalam api kecil dengan tutup sampai lembut
     sambil dicicipi, tambah garam, lada & sedikiiitt gula.  😛

3.) Sesudah kuah agak mengering, baru di pan-grilled dengan 2 sdm olive oil sampai berwarna coklat sedikit.
      Rasanya? wuaaahhh……  cihuy!

Marinate sauce:

Hainan Chicken Rice ala Crowne Plaza July 2, 2007

Filed under: CHICKEN — pinkytoes @ 5:24 pm

This dish has become one of our favorites, for lunch mostly, when we feel like having something light. The three standard condiments make quite a flavourful combination in the mouth with a yummie chicken broth that comes separately in a drinking mug.

Grilled Chicken in Coconut Gravy (Ayam Panggang Bazar) June 8, 2007

Filed under: CHICKEN — pinkytoes @ 8:21 am

 Indonesian Dish  

This grilled chicken is one of the family recipes. I’m not quite sure if there’s actually a specific name for it but we always refer it as ‘ayam panggang jeruk limo’. If cooked correctly, this grilled  chicken will be bursting with flavours, pleasingly tangy with a hint of lime aroma, it has subtle flavours of satay sauce but not quite as there’s no peanut sauce used in this dish.

Main Ingredients:

* Chicken – cut into pieces. I choose chicken wings as this part seems to take in spices well

* shallots (6), garlic cloves (4), candlenuts (5), fresh chilis (3) – all finely ground

* 2 pcs of bay leaves

* 3 pcs of kaffir lime leaves

* 1 cup of coconut milk, here I use packaged coconut powder

* 3 stalks of fresh Lemongrass – pound

* Tamarind 2-3 pcs (asam jawa bisa pakai 2-3 mata, kalow kurang bisa tambah)

* 1 pcs of indonesian lime  *jeruk limo*

Directions:

1.) Heat the pan & sauteed all ground spices, add chicken pieces and mix

2.) Add 2 cups of water, add lemongrass, bayleaves, tamarind, then add coconut milk

3.) A pinch of salt, pepper, little bit of sugar to taste and a drop of sweet soy sauce.
     Just a few drops or else it’s going to taste like satay. Add kaffir lime leaves

4.) Let it boil until soften

5.) Set aside chicken – while keeping the sauce on the stove until it thickens. Squeezed a few drops of lime

6.) Grill the chicken over medium heat. Serve with drizzle the sauce on top and sprinkle of ‘bawang
      goreng’  or fried shallots.
