Another day, another missed eating opportunity in Malaysia but luckily, there's heaps of recipes freely available, allowing one to re-create that much craved, uniquely Malaysian dish. I had accidentally bought more chicken pieces than I needed (probably a whole month's supply of chicken!) so I have decided to make some chicken rice.
Been trying to find the perfect recipe for preparing the chicken but so far, not much luck with finding it. Nevertheless, the accompanying rice and chilli sauce turned out fine:)
Hainanese chicken rice recipe was adapted from Rasa Malaysia
4 cloves garlic
4 finely chopped shallots
About 4x4cm piece of ginger
* The amount of each ingredient that I have used was approximate (no weighing scales needed) and was adjusted as I was cooking. If you like more shallots in your rice, fry more shallots:)
90g red chilies and bird’s eye chili (depending on how spicy you want it to be)
A few spoons of chicken broth to bring everything together
Again, the amount of each ingredients can be varied depending on your tastebuds. As for the sugar, salt and lime juice, just add sufficient amounts (enough to taste).
