Ayam Percik


by Alexa P., on Thu, December 16, 2010

Ayam percik is a popular dish usually sold at the pasar malam. Chicken is juicy and succulent and packed with yummy flavours. It is a surefire crowd pleaser that’s not too difficult to prepare…

"Tastes best grilled over charcoal"


To blend:
5 dried chillies, soaked
2 stalks lemongrass
3cm galangal
2 garlic cloves
8 shallots
1cm fresh turmeric
1cm belacan
2 candlenuts

1kg chicken, quartered
2 cups coconut cream
1 tsp tamarind juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt


This tastes great eventhough it

If you want a proper smoky char cook this on the grill


Marinate chicken with the blended ingredients for 1hour. Preheat oven to 180C on the grill setting.

Heat wok over medium flame without oil. Put chicken in for 3mins to tighten up the skin.

Turn off the heat, take out the chicken and place on a grill or an oven pan.

Pour the coconut cream, tamarind juice, sugar and salt in the wok to mix with the marinade left in the wok.

Coat the chicken with some of this mixture and put it in the oven.

Cook for 40mins. Keep cooking down the remainder of the sauce in the wok as the chicken cooks in the oven.

Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken once it’s done.
