Smash Chicken Rice (Nasi Ayam Penyek)


Assalamualaikum and hello everyone.

In most shopping mall now in Kuala Lumpur we can find a Nasi Ayam Penyek outlet or loosely translated as Smash Chicken Rice.Smash Chicken Rice or Nasi Ayam Penyek is of Indonesian origin. A friend gave me the recipe recently and so I am sharing it with you. The recipe consists of the rice, the chicken, the tofu and tempe or fermented soya bean, the soup and the chilli sauce.
The rice and the soup are my own version.

I supposed there are many ways of cooking this Ayam Penyek. Maybe in future I could find a really good one. For now I think this is quite good. So hope you will try this.

Yesterday I posted an article on the riots in London.I have not included the real incident that triggered the riots in the first place.I have however posted the link to Al Jazeera English should you wish to read in detail about the killing of Mark Duggan a 29-year-old resident of the Tottenham neighbourhood in London which had spurred some residents to march to the Tottenham police station to express their anger and demand answers about Duggan's death.

I am happy to note that my posting has received a response from a resident in London who is also a fellow blogger. I'd like to share with you his comment which would give you a better picture of what is really happening there.

I live in England and the London Rioting started because one guy was shot dead by the police as the young guy had a gun but there was no proof that the young guy tried to used it so the young people thought this was wrong and started the first day of rioting.
Then the Rioters saw that the police was scared to stopping them so they started hitting the town centres and stole and looted the more hight class stores.
I am 20 and go to University do you see me rioting no this rioting cost England over 200 million pounds which I saw in the news so in a time of recession and these young people do this.
I was here and I am young same age as them I do not support what they did at all they where just thieves look for what next to steal.
The looter have killed and bad hared a lot of people for example a old man was trying to stop a fire to help and they put him in a hospital nearly killed him so in my view there rioters where uneducated and heart less people all they care about was stealing so this all started because that young man was shot dead by the police not because of the cut of jobs and other thing but that did contribute to the rioting.
I just want to add my views of the rioting hope you like.

May peace reign again in the street of London.Till we meet again.Take care.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan
