Ayam Masak Merah

What can I say about this dish? Simple to cook, nothing complicated and taste wholesomely wonderful!! ^.^ I never resist spicy food, the hotter the better hehehe...But this particular dish is more sweet with touch of spiciness. Maybe I'm used to having spicy stuff, I do not find it spicy at all hahaha at least the heat is acceptable for my kids >.<

Recipe adapted from Table for 2
  • 850gm chicken parts (I used 2 whole chicken leg and 5 drumsticks)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • dash of pepper
  • 3 shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cm ginger
  • 2 red chilli
  • 2 inches cinnamon
  • 3 cloves
  • 3 cardamoms
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used evaporated milk)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup frozen green peas

  1. Marinate chicken with salt, turmeric and pepper for at least 30mins.
  2. Mill shallots, ginger, garlic and chilli.
  3. Heat wok and put in 1/2 cup oil. Pan fry chicken pieces until the skin turns golden. Dish up.
  4. Remove some of the oil (set aside for nasi goreng), leaving behind about 2 tbsp oil.
  5. Saute the milled ingredients on medium heat until it looks glossy, put in dry spices and sliced onion and sauté until the onions looks translucent and wilts.
  6. Put in the rest of the ingredients and chicken into the wok and cook until the gravy reduces and the chicken is cooked through. Dish up and serve.

Ayam masak merah is one of my hot favorites. It goes really well with your nasi goreng. Love the salsa too!

I like your pairing of the spicy chicken with the light and soury salsa - great idea.
