Chicken Sambal

Phew! I'm finally able to update this blog after a 3 month hiatus! Hope you enjoy this chicken sambal recipe!

Chicken - 15-20 medium sized pieces
Dried chillies - 8-10
Red onion - 2
Garlic (crushed) - 1 clove
Ginger - 2 inch piece
Shallots -3
Tomato - 1
Chili sauce - 3 tbsp
Lemongrass - 2 stalks
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste

Blend half of the red onion, shallots, garlic, ginger and deseeded dried chilies with a food processor. You can also use a mortal and pestle. The latter gives a better texture and taste.
Slice thinly the remaining red onion into rings. Put in the chicken and continue to stir until half cooked.
Heat some oil in a pan and fry the spice paste with lemongrass until fragrant. Remove from heat and add them together with the chicken and cook well.
Season with salt, and sugar.
Add chili sauce and simmer on low heat until the gravy thickens. Set aside and serve.
