Tastes best grilled over charcoal

This tastes great eventhough it

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

  • Preparation
  • Total
    2hour 45minutes
    To blend:
    5 dried chillies, soaked
    2 stalks lemongrass
    3cm galangal
    2 garlic cloves
    8 shallots
    1cm fresh turmeric

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.
