Ayam Pongteh

Me and my Nyonya cooking. Guess there is no end and if you are asking me, I don't think I will put a bracket to Malacca or Penang calling and coming Nyonya dishes. We did speak about Nyonya cuisine in quite a length previously ( Chicken Vindaloo , Kuih Buah Melaka &  Penang Assam Laksa ) and in other recipes as well? Henceforth, lets just put a stop to speaking further on the same thing over and over again ( Devil's Curry , Dried Shrimp Sambal , Masak Lemak Ikan Asin Nenas  & Nyonya Lam Mee ) instead of getting to the gist of this Ayam Pongteh. What is Ayam Pongteh or Pongteh Chicken? Basically, chicken cooked alongside potatoes, taucheo/fermented soy paste, chilies, vinegar and other kitchen friendly user ingredients, and for the end result of broad and wide burst of spiciness, saltiness and and nuttiness ( Ayam Masak Tiga Rasa , Chilli Chicken ,  Ayam Goreng Berempah , Ayam Masak Merah & Chicken Devil Curry ).
