Sometimes the simple food are amazing...
Today has been a windy weather and I was reading some of my recipe books thinking what shall I cook for dinner...thinking about cooking can be really stressful sometimes, usually I have my menu timetable for the month..but lately I've been lazy. I just take out some of the books and cook and today I realized I've to stick to my menu planner..because I'll just throw whatever recipes and disturb my monthly ingredients hehe...
Anyway, I decided to cook something simple, quick and definitely delicious. You know sometimes when you cook simple food once in a while its definitely taste yummy! I made Sambal telur/ Egg chili and Fried Chicken, you can serve it with warm white rice.
Before you fry the chicken make sure to marinate it so you get this delicious juicy in every bite! Yum
1 piece Torch ginger / bunga kantan
3 inches ginger
2 cloves of garlic
1 medium size french onion
3 green chilis
Blend all the ingredients together and marinate through the chicken and leave it for at least 1 hour. After that is ready to get cooking..yum.
