I usually do a beef and kankun...but as it's just after Wesak holidays here...we will not have beef till June!
My husband is a beef fan...so he was a bit skeptical of how this will turn out when I said I'm going to try chicken :-)
This was my first try with chicken and I was very pleased with how it turned out!
Step 1: Ingredients
500 g Beef / Chicken - Marinate with 2 tsp vinegar, 1tsppepper tbs soya sauce ,1/2 tsp salt
10 Green Chilly ( less if you don't like chilli)
3 Tbs Oil
1 Tbs Ginger and Garlic paste ( to make your own grind 50g ginger, 100g garlic and 1 tbs oil (oil is only nessasary if you want to use it for like ages! and want to preserve it)
1 Tbs Dried red chilli pieces.
1 Tbs Chilli paste
2 Big onions
1 bundle kankun
1 tsp Salt
The below quantity is if you need a lot of sauce/gravy which is what I did.
2 Tbs Sugar
3 Tbs Oyster sauce
3 Tbs Soya sauce
2 Cups Stock ( you will get this in the next step)
If you don't want a lot of gravy follow the below quantity...It's not proportionate...but that's how it is :-)
1 Tbs Sugar
2 Tbs Oyster sauce
2 Tbs Soya sauce
1/2 Cup Stock
Step 2: Chicken
Once boiled marinate again with-
1 tbs vinigar
1 tbs soya sauce
1/4 tsp salt and pepper.
keep for 15 minutes and deep fry.
this gives the chicken a super flavor!
now for the rest
Step 3: Deep Fry
Now as soon as you deep fry the chicken and take it out...quickly put in your chilly and onions and half fry them and take out.
Step 4: Putting It Together
heat your oil.. add 1 tbs ginger and garlic, 1tsp salt , 1 tbs dried red chilly, 1 tbs chilly paste, 2 tbs sugar, 3 tbs oyster sauce, 3 tbs soya sauce.
Add your kankun and stir a bit and add your stock.
Cook a bit till the kankun sort of cooks and wilts..check picture.
Now add your fried chicken, onion and green chilly. give it a stir and off fire.!
Step 5: My Husbands Thoughts
'wow...didn't think the chicken would turn out so great! I can't decide which is better!'
yes... it turned out really great!
so to encourage you to make this super dish..I'm giving out 3 months pro membership to the first 5 who tries it and post pictures!
looking forward to them :-)
