To some the chicken might taste a bit bland but done well you will have a subtle taste of cencalok with each bite.
This dish grows on you...
Serves 3 - 4 people
A subtle gingery chicken with a great broth
Half a chicken, chopped
1 tbs cencalok
5 Kaffir lime leaves
1/2 turmeric leaf
1 onion, sliced
2 red chillies, sliced
Rub cencalok on the chicken and arrange it in a steamer.
Tear and scatter kaffir lime leaves and turmeric leaf on top.
Steam for about 20-25 minutes until chicken is tender.
Before serving scatter chillies and onions on top and squeeze some lime.
Alternatively you can steam the chicken on it’s own first and once done toss it with the rest of the ingredients.
This gives it a more powerful punch.
