Ayam Masak Merah (Red Chili Chicken)

Beside Ayam Paprik, I like to eat another type of Malay style of Ayam (Chicken), Ayam Masak Merah (Red Chili Chicken), usually I will top up this chicken when I buy Nasi Lemak from Malay stall.

- Ayam Masak Merah (Red chili chicken), very hot and spicy..

2. Heat oil in a wok, saute the spice paste and lemongrass until fragrant. Add chili and tomato paste and saute for a while.
3. Add in the fried chicken pieces, season with salt and sugar, mix well and add some water to simmer for a while.

I love all the food you cooked except petai. Because when I was in Taiwan, most people in the Southern Taiwan (南部)ate a lot of petai (嫔榔). I can't stand the smell.

Reanaclaire, then you should cook yourself.

A fulltime housefly, petai is like durian, some ppl love it and some ppl just hate it.

Penny, Asam Petai, sound interesting.

Felvinc, anytime.

Pete, ya huh, I forgot this combination, next time I will cook tomato rice with Ayam Merah, my kid just love tomato rice.

Nat, actually nasi lemak is quite easy to cook, try to check my previous recipe and try it out, have fun.

Mia, Bakeling and Colin, Thanks, I will enjoy and have fun in my HK trip, and will take a lot of photos possible and share with your later. Take care and see you soon.

Oooh, those look very hot and spicy! I'm terrible when it comes to hot foods, and since I'm half-Indian, it's really embarrassing! But I'd eat this tasty dish anyway and make sure I had a big glass of milk to go with it.
