Ayam masak merah
is the 1st Malays dish that I learn to cook

I was attracted to its colour
and then the taste

There are many ways of cooking this dish
depending on the various spices used
I prefer this simple method

Ayam Masak Merah

1 chicken thigh, chopped into bite size & marinate with turmeric

1 big onion, chopped finely
1 serai, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp chili sauce, spicy type
1 Tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp soya sauce
1-2 tsp tamarind, pressed & soaked in 1/4 cup water, & seeds removed
1/2 tsp sugar
salt to taste

1. fry chicken pieces in oil until dry & slightly brown, remove
2. heat up 1-2 Tbsp oil in the wok, tumis onions & serai until fragrant
3. combine the rest of the seasoning sauce in a small bowl
4. pour the seasoning into the wok & allow to cook through
5. add chicken pieces & salt if necessary
6. remove from heat & allow chicken to soak in the sauce until serving time
