Ayam Masak Merah / Malay Spicy Tomato Chicken 马来式番茄辣椒鸡

I love Ayam masak merah !! I have been cooking this nice flavorful Malay dish but have yet to update a proper recipe (brief old recipe in 2009 !!) on my blog. Nice aroma turmeric fried chicken in spicy, hint of sour from tomato and lemongrass sauce, so good !









Just served with Asian salad (Carrot, cucumber, onions ) like this , so satisfy !! I also like to serve it with tomato rice, yum...

Hi, Sonia!

Your spicy tomato chicken looks delish! Is it ok to try it with Malaysian curry powder instead of turmeric? It's what I have right now. Thanks for sharing your recipe and more power!

XOXO

I don't eat chicken because I'm a vegan but the sauce looks interesting and I just might have to try and make a tofu version of this! Thanks for the idea! I hopped over from another blog.
