Ayam Berlada for Eid

Busy busy busy..busy with last minute baking and cooking and for some busy with last minute shopping for cakes and cookies..busy with arranging and rearranging the furniture..busy with getting the china and glasses and cutlery out... .busy with a one and million thing. I guess that will be the scenario in every Muslims home now in welcoming 1st Shawal.

I have managed to put together this video on Ayam Berlada which happens to be the family favourite dish. The fried chicken pieces are cooked in blended Thai and dried red chillies. Hope you can try it. Have to warn you though that it is a very very hot dish. Enjoy.

Ayam Berlada

1 whole chicken (cut to pieces, rub with salt and tumeric and fry)
3 onions (blend)
1 bulb garlic (blend)
3 stalk lemon grass (blend)
2 inch ginger (blend)
2 inch galangal (blend)
1/4 cup vinegar
salt to taste
2 pieces tumeric leaves slice thinly (optional)
4 cups oil
1 rice bowl blended thai chillies
1 rice bowl blended dried chillies

1) Heat oil in wok
2) Fry garlic,onions,ginger,galangal and lemon grass
3) Add in the thai chillies and dried chillies
4) Add in the vinegar,tumeric leaves.
5) salt to taste
6) Add in the chicken and simmer over slow fire until the chillies are cooked.
7) Simmer until the liquid is reduced and the chillies thicken and slightly dry.
8) Remove from stove,ready to serve.

This dish can last for few days if we reheat often. Its good to eat with rice, or nasi impit(compressed rice) or bread.

Till we meet again, take care of yourself.

  1. How do you blend the dried chilies until it looked so thick and saucy? When I blend dried chilies here in the US, it becomes dried flakes.

  2. First you either boiled the dried chillies till they are soft or soaked them in boiling water till they are soft.Then you drain the water and put them in the blender with some water.You can also blend the boiled chillies with onions,garlic,lemon grass and galangal instead of separately to save time.Hope my answer has helped you.Thank you for dropping in.
