Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken

Have you heard of Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken (Chick Kut Teh & Chinese Turnip/Sengkuang Stew)? Where are you my Chinese followers? Can I be absolutely sure you know what is Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken? I shall take it as if you are nodding your head, whereas I am unsure if my Indian and Malay followers are aware of such a dish. Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken as far as I know, makes its presence known during full moon, or confinement. Of course for the women and not for the men, unless men are now capable of getting pregnant, I really don't know, but I can assure you that this Chinese chicken dish is for keeping women warmth after childbirth. Usually made with pork knuckles, my version as you have noted is obviously a chicken halal version (Ayam Masak Merah, Chicken Devil Curry, Chicken Curry Potato & Indian Chicken Curry),  and one which you can also slurp in during rainy season or whatever you yearn for it. But remember something. You can't overdo it because too much can literally light up a fire in your body. Made alongside chicken, black vinegar, boiled eggs, garlic, ginger and tadbit of dried chillies, I am sincerely hoping you are gamed for trying this Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken.  

3 chicken wings (cut at the joints)
2 eggs (boiled)
3 dried red chillies (broken) - optional
1 inch ginger (sliced into thin big pieces)
5 pips garlic (crushed)
1 tbsp black vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp oil
Coriander leaves ( as needed)
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, fry chicken, garlic, ginger and dried chillies for a couple of minutes.
Pour 1/2 litre of water.
Season with black vinegar, sugar and salt.
Simmer over low heat until chicken is tender and soft.
Drop in boiled eggs.
Simmer for another 2 mins after which remove from heat. 
Garnish with coriander leaves before serving.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!
