Chicken Tempra

This is one of my favourite nyonya dish. It has a little bit spicy and sourish taste.
I love the gravy, it goes very well with steamed white rice, or you can just sip it from the spoon.

2 chicken thigh & drumstick, cleaned & chopped into pieces.
1 onion ,sliced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1-2 chilli, sliced

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
11/2 tbsp brown sugar
100 ml water , if you like the gravy, you can add more.
3 ml lime juice, from about 2-3 lime

Heat a wok, add in 2 tbsp oil.
Fry onion till fragrant, then add in garlic, fry a while.
Add in sliced chillies, fry a while.
Add in chopped chicken, fry until half cooked.
Then add in the seasoning and water. Let it simmer until the chicken is tender and cooked.

Lastly add in lime juice and turn off the fire.
Dish up and serve.
