  20. Ah...so maltose and shrimp paste are the 2 secret ingredients?
    I've been thinking to buy a bottle of Marmite too, but a bit worry not able to finish up the whole bottle.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ahh, so Cheong Kim Chuan Har Ko is a secret ingredient.

  22. I'm not a fan of marmite but just looking at this, I'm about to be convinced! Great looking dish!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sonia, you did this so well! I love the addition of prawn paste to this dish, it makes it a bit like rojak taste, hehe. I still have marmite left, it's time to cook this dish again!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aiyo! Looks so tempting. I don't have marmite lei. Can I add bovril instead of marmite? If can then tomorrow I can cook this. Really don know what to cook for dinner. Thanks for this idea.

    ReplyDelete
  26. My favorite Marmite. I will bring back a few bottle when I go back home. I like it with hot water or in porridge. I have yet to cook it with chicken. I have to try out your recipe soon.

    ReplyDelete
  27. True true Sonia. When we went back to M'sia, every time when our friends belanjar no matter in KL or Perak, they also ordered this dish! This dish hasn't come to Sydney yet, let me try making them & introduce to the "tau ke" here, haha!

  30. The chicken looks so inviting....I never know it can be used in such a way. I used to Bovril, instead of marmite, always hv it with my porridge or 干捞noodle.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sonia,this marmite chicken of yours is so tempting.
    I love the taste of marmite adding shrimp paste..so nice.
    I will try out your marmite chicken recipe.
    Just to share with you that Marmite is yeast extracted, it is vegetable base whereas Brovil is beef base product..:)

    ReplyDelete

  46. Hi Sonia,
    Looks yummy. May I know where to buy maltose in KL?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi, you can get it from those Chinese Yok Choy Poh which selling herbs and others.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am so interested to try this. I haven't had Marmite, but I have had Vegemite. As is probably expected, not growing up with it or being around it, I wasn't a fan. I haven't completely sworn it off though. I'd love to try the flavor in this sauce! I looks great!

  49. Hi,
    I'm new to your blog, and must say that I love your blog! Your marmite chicken looks very delicious. Can I substitute chicken with pork ribs? Do I use the same ingredients? Thanks

    Jaynelle

    ReplyDelete
  50. Jaynelle, yes, of course you can change it to pork ribs, but I will suggest you to add a pinch of soda to tenderdize the meat when marinating.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks for your quick response! Do I need to wash of the soda before marinating with the rest of the ingredients? Jaynelle

    ReplyDelete
  52. Jaynelle, I think better wash Soda away before add in the rest of ingredients..

    ReplyDelete
  53. Where can I get the Maltose, shrimp paste? Pasar? Supermarket?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi,

    Daphne

    ReplyDelete
  56. Daphne, thanks for your support. No , prawn paste is difference from belacan. This prawn paste is use to add into Rojak .

  57. Hi Sonia,

  58. Hi Sonia,

    Just realised that I didn't complete my question :)
    Can I omit shrimp paste and maltose?
    Thanks

    LL

    ReplyDelete
  59. LL, if you were to omit all these ingredients, i afraid the taste will not be the same!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I tried to find maltose in Bandar utama, Sri hartamas, Mont kiara but it's fruitless.. I went to the Chinese herbal shop and the shop assistants don't even know what's that. * disappointed* can anyone suggest areas where I can find maltose? Thx

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi there, I'm such a fan of your blog and I just made this. Thank you so much for your amazing recipe ! The chicken was gone in minutes :)

  62. Where can I buy maltose in Singapore?

    ReplyDelete
  63. does cake flour produce a crunchy crispy crust? I have tried this recipe with pork ribs but tenderised it earlier with baking soda and the result is fabulous and I made it with twice the amount of sauce since it couldnt coat all the pork ribs. I want to try it with cake flour this time so i would like to ask have u tried it with cake flour and how is the result? thanks heaps if u can reply asap.
