3cm knob ginger peeled and pounded
500g chicken cut int small pieces (i used chicken drumsticks)
5tbsp tumeric powder
125ml cooking oil (i used corn oil)
2tbsp chilli paste (I used those that are sold in the market)
4tbsp tomato sauce
2tbsp dark soy sauce
salt to taste
sugar to taste

1. I use a grinder and grind the shallots and ginger into a paste.
2. Boil chicken in a pot with tumeric powder and salt till half -cooked. Drain.
3. Heat 100ml of oil in apan and fry chicken until crispy. Set aie
4. Heat 25ml of oil and saute the ground ingredients until fragrant.
Add chillip aste and fry until you see a layer of oil
5. Put in tomato sauce, dark soy sauce, salt and sugar to taste. When you see oil in the surface, add the chicken and stir well.

Is it supposed to be 5 tsp or 5 tbsp tumeric? If tbsp, then that's a lot, way too much.

Btw, did you buy this book? How are the recipes there?

Hi Alannia

Ya the book wrote 5tbsp and I put 5tbsp of tumeric powder. Very nice. I borrowed the book from the library. For a beginner like me, I think the book is interesting. Easy to follow.
