Ayam Rempah Mami Penang (Spicy Mami Penang Chicken)

It has been yonkers since I wrote. I have been feeling the itch to write and share again..but my days of pouring out my sob story is over. I have moved on from that stage which I never thought I would, and now resort to writing in my pink book _ which I am sure my kids have peeked into, hence they would know that this old woman do have her crushes...though they misinterpret some and say i am an absolute cougar growwwlll. Anyways, enough of that, I intend to 'immortalise' my recipe, which I too often misplace and I figure, why not share those recipes that has helped me through those days when I have too little to scrape through, and hence created one dish meals for my 'crew'. I can't say it is 100% mine- now that is plagiarism, I learnt this from a dear friend of mine, Noorazizah Burhan who is a wonderful mom, a sharp business woman and a great friend.

1/2 chicken - cut into parts

 Marinate ingredients
4 cloves of garlic - pounded
3/4 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
I tablespoon tumeric powder
 Just mix it all up and slather the above onto your chicken pieces

 Saute Ingredients
1/2 Onion - I prefer the purplish range
2 cloves garlic - crushed and minced
1/2 tomato - sliced, not too thinly
2 red chillies, cut slanting into 3
2 green chillies, cut slanting into 3
1 pandan leaf knotted,
a few curry leaves, the more the merrier
 Other ingredients:
 1 1/2 tablespoon fish curry powder
a dash of sweet soy sauce - i prefer cap kipas udang yumm

 Deep fry the marinated chicken until golden brown in a wok, preferably, and remove. Remove some of the frying oil, leaving only approximately a cup or so. Reheat and saute the saute ingredients until fragrant and the onions are somewhat transparent Sprinkle the curry powder in the hot oil and mix thoroughly - the joy is in the cling clanging of the spatula and the wok :) put in your dash of soy sauce, perhaps about 2 tablespoons. Mix well and throw in the chicken. Mix mix mix. Turn off fire and serve with hot white rice!!!

That would be grand, but going to Delhi to meet you again in the flesh is still a dream. Missing you, sis.
