Chicken Rendang

Rendang is always a spicy favourite amongst us Asian people. Thick chunks of spiced meat with the fragrant spices is simply irresistible such that talking about it makes our mouths water! But the use of sugar and coconut milk takes a toll on our health, so we tried out a healthier, yet still as yummy version of chicken rendang for you guys to enjoy.
While normally chicken rendang will use quite a bit of sugar, we eliminated this together with coconut milk, and replaced it with coconut oil, grated coconut as well as yogurt! Paring this together with the usual rendang spices like lemongrass, turmeric and kaffir leaves to name a few, we still get that flavorful, soft and tender taste that we all love!
So give it a go and serve it to your family, without worrying about the sinfulness that comes with it.]
