Chicken Pong Teh

Today, I want to share Chicken Pong Teh(Ayam Pong Teh) recipe.This is one of our favourite nyonya dish.My mom used to add pork meat into this dish.But, we like it this way, without the pork meat.The kids loves the gravy mix with white rice.Here's the recipe:

2 whole chicken legs,cut into pieces.
5-6 mushrooms
200 gm potatoes,peeled and cut into pieces
2 tbsp oil
4 shallots, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 tbsp chopped ginger
2 tbsp soy bean paste (tauchu)
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
11/2 tbsp gula melaka/palm sugar/coconut sugar
* if using granulated sugar, I suggest use 1/2 tbsp,
but anyway, it's different ppl different taste bud.
200 ml water

Soak the mushroom in water for about 30 minutes or until soft.
Wash and squeeze the water from the mushrooms and cut it into half.
Chopped the whole chicken legs.
Peeled the potatoes and cut into pieces.
Chopped shallots, garlic and ginger.
Heat a wok, pour in 2tbsp oil.
Stir fry shallot, garlic and ginger till fragrant.
Add in soy bean paste(tauchu) and stir fry a bit.
Add in mushrooms and stir fry,it will become dry a bit.
Add in chicken and stir fry again until half cooked.
Add in potatoes and water, cover to cook, about 5 minutes,keep stirring in between.
Lastly add in gula melaka/palm sugar/coconut sugar. Serve.

Very popular Nyonya food, my fav too, for my recipe, I add some dried red chillies or chilly flakes for the spicy taste.
