Curried Roast Chicken

I like this whole idea to inventing my own recipes. Of course, when time is on my side, not always though, whenever I can squeeze in pretty much. Inventing recipes by far is my proud moment to food happiness (Malaysian Lamb Curry Noodles). Call me the recipe inventor or recipe influencer (Grilled Chicken Wings & Baked Cornflakes Chicken) if you feel you should. Thus, henceforth, therefore, my this time invention is Curried Roast Chicken (Chicken Curry Potatoes & Indian Chicken Curry). Chicken of course is the main highlight, but instead of one whole chicken, I opted for two pieces (Honey Chilli Chicken, Chicken Wanton Soup & Chicken Feet Salad) due to me dining alone. Nothing worrying, nothing nor intimidating, neither you should be over concern, over the word curried. Not for my recipes though. Basically, you make this Curried Roast Chicken (Cashew Masala Chicken, Butter Chicken, Sesame Chicken & Sweet Chilli Chicken) with your pantry friendly ingredients I reckon. Obviously curry leaves scented. Yes, curry leaves for roast chicken. Remember, I already told you, my invention? What shouldn't we use curry leaves for a roast, you tell me please? Curry leaves coupled alongside curry powder, ginger juice, garlic juice, onion juice, oil and salt. Crispy utterly on the outside, tender bite inside, and amazing curry leaf scented Curried Roast Chicken.

2 pieces ( about 350g) of chicken breast (with bones)
1 tbsp meat curry powder
3 sprigs curry leaves - roughly shredded
1 tsp ginger juice
1 tsp garlic juice
1 tbsp onion juice
Salt for taste
2 tbsp oil  

Rub chicken pieces with all the ingredients except oil.
Gently poke with a fork to sip the ingredients inside.
Marinate for at least 4 hours.
Smear a baking pan with oil and place the chicken pieces inside alongside the marinated ingredients. .
Bake on a preheated oven (10 mins) at 180C (more of less) for about 50 mins or until chicken is cooked and crispy on the outside.
Serve on a bed of lettuce leaves with some slices of cucumber (optional)

    Bal - ginger juice is extracted either by pounding or blending some pieces of ginger.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
