Kambing Masak Kicap/ Mutton Soy Sauce

Hi darlings. I know. I have been missing in action (MIA) in this precious space of mine. Been, like, almost two weeks or so, right? Sort of. Actually, I didn’t even keep tap how long it has been. Anyway, what’s been going on with me, if you would like to find out? Even if you are not interested in finding out, I will still tell you. Aha! Life has been bustling with all sorts of things. As usual. What else is new. But now, it’s even more bustling. I’m now like the queen bee building my honey nest. Meaning. I have been working on a couple of things, including educating myself. Educating in the sense, not so much for flaunting my credentials, actually, come to think of it, why not. But more to that, educating myself so that my customers and clients are confident in the services or products I am offering them. Apart from, of course, credentials and qualifications, for knowledge gaining, for knowledge thirsting and for the learning curve to go up in the industry I am in. There’s still more groundwork to be worked on and hopefully, all will fall in place. Not hopefully actually, they must and they should.   


Having said that, apart from studying, and still at putting the jigsaw puzzle of my business together and being stuck at home due to lockdown in Malaysia and specifically in the area I am residing, cooking must go on. Of course. Basic, simple cooking for a decent homecooked meal. This Kambing Kicap/Mutton Kicap on the other hand, is not a recent one. In fact, I made this mutton dish a couple of months ago when time was sunny on my side. As well as, for the purpose of sharing the recipe on my YouTube channel.


The mutton story in my house? Right. You know it right? I have told you before and I have also shared other Malay Style Mutton dishes before (Kari Kambing Malaysia, Mutton Rendang & Sate Kambing). Now, what can you expect from Kambing Kicap/Mutton Kicap? Tender, soft mutton pieces, in a spicy, tadbit of salty and favorably scented to your senses gravy/sauce. Hit it. Hit it at the recipe now. Take care darlings. Until the next time, take care. 

½ kg mutton bones & flesh. 
Add some ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric powder, some water and pressure cook. 

Other ingredients 
2 big onion - slice 
Dried chilies - as needed 
Spices – 2 bay leaves, 2 star anise, 2 cinnamon and 4 cloves 
Kicap/Soy sauce - as needed 
Lime juice - as needed 
2 tbsp oil 
Salt - per taste 
2 tbsp oil 
1 turmeric leaf - slice (optional) 

Heat oil. 
Add onion, dried chillies and spices. 
Sweat these ingredients. 
Add mutton with the juice. 
Pour soy sauce.   
Stir and simmer.  
Once gravy has simmered, remove mutton and allow the gravy to thicken. 
Next, add mutton back inside, add salt and lime juice as well. 
Switch of the heat and add turmeric leaf. 
Let the dish be in the wok/pot, so that gravy will soak into the mutton, before serving.
