ayam padprik

today, i share with you the recipe for ayam padprik. this is a thai recipe. i've cooked this dish before using various other recipes i found on the internet. this particular recipe, i took from this book. the verdict? well, to me it was just for the roomie, he prefers the ones that i made from other recipes. this one, for him is a no-go. but then again, it is all a matter of taste, right? maybe you guys can give it a go and lemme know, yes?

300g chicken fillet
½ carrot
100g cauliflower
1 green capsicum
1 big onion

(b) for the sauce
2 tbs thick/dark soy sauce
5 tbs tomato sauce
5 tbs chilli sauce
3 tbs oyster sauce
5 kaffir lime leaves, i didn't have any, so i didn't use
1 lemongrass, bruised lightly (ouch?)
3 lime, for the juice
5 birdeye chillies
3 cloves garlic
½ cup water
cooking oil

the how to:
1)  heat oil and saute the garlic, big onion, birdeye chillies and lemongrass till fragrant.

2)  add in the chicken and mix them thoroughly.

3)  add in the carrot, thick soy sauce, tomato sauce, chilli sauce, oyster sauce and water. let it simmer for a while.

4)  once it starts to boil, you can then add in the capsicum and the cauliflower.

5)  let it simmer one more time, and once it starts to boil again, add in the kaffir lime leaves and stir.

6)  you can then add in the lime juice, stir them till they are evenly mixed and take the heat off the wok.

7)  ready to serve with some rice.
i think what made this dish a tad 'different' is the lime juice. i didn't like the taste that it gave, it was very acidic.
nemind, you try and lemme know.
