Braised Chicken Feet Stew With Mushrooms

Today, we will be making a Chinese dish (Chic Kut Teh, Rice Congee Salted Fish & Chinese Turnip Stew). One which is different compared to the customary dishes I've had shared so far (Minced Chicken Cabbage Soup, Chicken Wonton Soup, Chinese Fried Rice, Steamed Cod Fish & Stir Fried Kailan Oyster Sauce). But I won't say its a peculiar dish. I know some of  you love chicken feet, I'm one of them as well (Chicken Feet Salad/Kerabu). Since I've never made this dish before, obviously, I had to speak to some of my Chinese friends to get an idea or two. I sure attentively listened while jotting down the ingredients, then of course as usual I had to tweet the recipe for this my version Braised Chicken Feet Stew With Mushrooms.

10 pieces chicken feet - thoroughly washed 
4 dried chillies
Spices - 2-3 cinnamon sticks, 1 star anise and 2 cloves
1 inch ginger - sliced thinly
5 garlic - sliced thinly 
1 can (400g) button mushrooms - drained out the water
Oil as needed
Spring onion for garnishing

For the Seasoning
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp thick soy sauce
1 tbsp light  soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
Drops of sesame oil 

Deep fry chicken feet in oil  for a crispy outer layer.
Dish out and rinse off the oil with water.  
Then soak in water for 1 1/2 hours and drain off. 
Heat 2 tbsp of oil and when heated, saute ginger, dried chillies and spices. 
Add in chicken feet and pour about 1/2 liter of water.
Add all the seasoning and simmer over low heat to soften feet.
(Note; it will take quite a while) 
Add mushrooms and continue to simmer, another 2 to 3 minutes. 
Garnish with spring onion before serving.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
