Rumah Sayang at JEM - Nonya Curry Chicken $6



Nonya Curry Chicken : At $6 per serving this dish comes served with chicken slow cooked in rempah curry gravy made with core ingredients : chili padi, young ginger, old ginger, garlic, onion, galangal, shallots, tumeric (that gives it a bright yellow color), dried chili, fresh chili, lemongrass. 

How it is prepared The chicken is first marinated over night. When the Nonya Curry Chicken order has been placed, the chicken is blanched in hot water for 5 minutes to remove any gamey smell, then transferred to the curry gravy to cook for another 15-20 minutes at low fire till the chicken is fully cooked, then the fire is turn off, and the chicken is served.

Food Tasting Notes : The Nonya curry chicken is actually frozen chicken drumstick that is cooked in rempah made from chili padi, young ginger, old ginger, garlic, onion, galangal, shallots, a generous dose of tumeric (that gives it a bright yellow color), dried chili, fresh chili, and tastes more spicy than the laksa because of the dash of chili padi. The gravy is thicker, and has a nutty taste because of the candle-nuts that is added in. The gravy is nicely blended and has a smooth texture. 
Though Chef Lo uses frozen chicken, the meat is slow cooked on low fire and therefore is tender & the skin is actually very tasty. This Nonya curry chicken has special ingredient : lemongrass in its recipe that gives it a lemonly flavor. 
The two main ingredients are: chicken drumstick and potatoes. The potatoes are cooked pretty tender, not too mashy, but still cooked thoroughly and soft to the bite. Chef Lo shares that he use potatoes from Indonesia. 
This dish is a comfort food for those who love thick rich mildly spicy gravy. I personally would love to drizzle the gravy all over my rice and let the rice soaked in all that flavor from the spiced laden gravy. Yummilicious!
