Resipi Noxxa: Asam Pedas Ayam

Assalamualaikum...

Here I am again....Alhamdulillah the highest gratitude to the Most Merciful Allah.

Hari ni nak berkongsi hasil tanganku, yang pertama kali dimasak. First time in my kitchen. The idea to cook this came when a friend of mine, sis Zarina Zainol distributed her homegrown 'bunga kantan'. Bunga kantan is quite expensive nowadays pricing ata RM3 per bud at average. When someone gave it for free, it's a great oppprtunity to turn it into something edible.





A modified but copy and paste from Cik Mat Gebu's
What is required
5 ketul ayam
2 sudu besar cili kisar (I precooked my chilli paste)
1 batang serai, diketuk
1 genggam daun kesom
1 kuntum bunga kantan, belah 2
1 camca teh asam jawa
2 biji terung ungu, kerat 2, belah 2 setiap keratan, rendam
1 biji tomato dibelah 4
Garam dan gula secukup rasa
Air secukupnya

Frying
1 ulas bawang merah
2 ulas bawang putih
1/2 inci kunyit hidup
1/2 inci halia
1/2 camca teh lada hitam biji
1/2 inci lengkuas

CARA MEMBUATNYA :-) (This is purely a cut and paste from CMG)
  1. Panaskan minyak dalam periuk, tumis serai titik dan bahan kisar halus hingga harum, masukkan cili kisar dan masak hingga cili garing, guna api kecil dan kacau selalu. Tambah pes asam jawa dan kacau hingga rata.
  2. Masukkan ayam, gaul dan biar hingga ayam kecut. Tuang air secukupnya dan biar mendidih hingga ayam empuk. Masukkan daun kesom dan bunga kantan. Kacau dan perasakan dengan garam secukup rasa dan sedikit gula.
  3. Tambah terung (toskan) dan masak hingga terung lembut. Akhir sekali masukkan tomato ceri, masak sekejap dan rasa, jika ok boleh matikan api. 

My method (since I am using the Noxxa Pressure Cooker - almaklum la orang baru dapat mainan).

  1. Turn on the 'Stir Fry" function. Heat the cooking oil. Fry the lemon grass and blended ingredients till you can smell the nice aroma and fragrant.
  2. Add the chilli paste and stir fry for another few seconds till the oil came to the surface (pecah minyak).
  3. Turn off the SF function. Add chicken while the pot is still hot. Also add the daun kesum and bunga kantan.
  4. Add water to cover the chicken (or to as how much gravy that you want).
  5. Put the lid on. Make sure the knob is set to pressure. Set the 'High Pressure' for 10 minutes. And let it do it's work. Meanwhile you can start with other courses (vege. for example).
  6. After 10 minutes, you will hear the bip sound. Release the pressure by turning the knob to steam.
  7. Add tamarind juice, salt, sugar, tomato and brinjal. Set to SF till boil.
  8. Done.

Alhamdulillah.... in about 30 minutes (including the preparation time), the main dish is ready.

The comments from the testers, "Superb". My husband was really in love with it. He likes it very much. So does the kids. Alhamdulillah ........
