SWEET SOUR CHICKEN / AYAM MASAM MANIS


The authentic sweet sour chicken used boneless chicken but mine, I used 1 whole chicken cut into 16 pieces. My version of sweet and sour is a mixture of the Chinese and Malay. I added some fresh chili to make it a little bit hot. I also tossed a generous amount of pineapple, green peppers, tomatoes, and onions into this dish. It's delicious and of course goes well with hot steam rice.

Biasanya masakan ini menggunakan isi ayam yang digoreng dengan tepung jagung dahulu. Tetapi untuk resipi ini saya menggunakan seekor yam yang dipotong 16, digoreng garam kunyit sehingga kekuningan. Untuk sosnya pula saya tambahkan cili merah, supaya masakan ini tidak terlalu muak. Biasalah tekak orang Melayu mesti hendakkan peda-pedas sedikit. Bahan-bahan lain seperti biasa saya masukkan cili benggala, hijau dan kuning serta juga nenas tin berserta airnya sekali. Menu ini adalah sajian masakan Cina yang amat digemari dan juga ianya sesuai sebagai sajian kanak-kanak. Biasanya kalau untuk sajian kanak-kanak cili merah itu tidak perlu dimasukkan.
