As it’s nearing Hari Raya Puasa we have prepared a few dishes for the holiday!
A dish normally pass down within the family, this chicken dish is sweet and spicy at the same time!
The chicken is baked with turmeric in the oven, before adding it into the rempah. The combination of the spice and sweetness with the tomatoes is simply shiok, to say the least. We’d like to add that it tastes even better if you can wait to eat it the next day.
Perfect for pairing with white or tomato rice, give it a go and you won’t be disappointed!
