Easy Chicken Kebab

Literally. Many much more and aplenty dishes can be created with chicken? Of course. Stop doubting me neither you should doubt yourself. Its a fact. Any which chicken part for any which chicken dish you want (Indian Chicken Curry, Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken, Curry Chicken Noodles & Chicken Wanton Soup). You name it, we can by far have it. However,  it all depends on you. Whether you are dependent on the same dishes over and over again, or you are willing to give a go to something new or different (Salted Egg Chicken, Grilled Chicken Wings, Butter Chicken, Chicken Vegetable Soup & Sweet Chilli Chicken)? Which cooking direction I am taking you to right now? Chicken, easy and grilling. Easy, as you know is me. Even as a person I am easy going and when its my cooking, do I have to speak any further (Baked Cornflakes Chicken, Braised Chicken Feet, Curried Roast Chicken, Spicy Fried Wings & Chicken Varuval). Grilling? Not open grilling, rather in the over the stove portable grill. Moreover, I don't think you will struggle in getting the ingredients. If you can't get lemongrass, perhaps return back to the conventional metal skewers or those wood skewers will do. And finally, what should I say? Pair this Easy Chicken Kebab alongside, I have given you the option to Spicy Mashed Potatoes. Otherwise, its really up to you. 

For The Kebab
300g minced chicken
4 stalks of lemongrass - lightly bruise the top part
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
2-3 tbsp barbecue sauce (optional, only if you want to, otherwise omit or use any other sauce as per your liking) 
1-2 tbsp oil
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste

For The Spicy Mashed Potatoes
2 medium size potatoes - simmer till tender, remove skin and mash
2 small shallots - chopped
1 red chili - chopped
1 sprig coriander leaves - chopped
Salt for taste

For The Kebab
Combine minced chicken with ginger, garlic, pepper and salt.
Mix and separate into 4 portions.
Moisten your hands and grab one portion of the minced chicken.
Gently pat it and roll over the a stalk of lemongrass.
Do the same to the other portions. 
Heat oil on a portable grill and when heated, grill kebab all over to cook evenly.
Pour barbecue sauce on top of it. 
Roll the kebab pieces to coat with the sauce before removing from grill.
For The Spicy Mashed Potatoes
Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir together.
Serve kebabs with salad leaves and mashed potatoes.

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.
