The recipe here was not spicy enough ( cooked according to my youngest daughter taste,she can't take too spicy).You can use dried chillies to replace the fresh chillies for spicyness, or add bird chillies(chilli padi).You can add kaffir lime leaves too.
Here's the recipe:
3 chicken thigh and drumstick , separate the drumstick and thigh, become 6 pieces.
2 -3 pieces tamarind peel
2 pieces of turmeric leaves,slice thinly
Salt and sugar to taste
1/2 cup of kerisik
140 gm shallots
60 gm garlic
160 gm chilli, I used fresh chilli
4 cm of ginger
2 cm of galangal
3 cm turmeric
2 pieces of turmeric leaves ( I omitted this,cause I only had 2 pieces..lol)
Add pounded ingredients, turmeric leaves and coconut milk in a pot.
Let it boils, then add in chicken.
Cook until the the chicken cooked and the gravy becomes thick.
Add in tamarind peel.
Add in salt and sugar to taste.
Lastly add in kerisik.
How to make kerisik:
Stir fry 1 cup of coconut in a wok until golden brown and fragrant.Pound or grind the fried coconut.
