Chicken in ginger gravy/sauce (ayam masak halia)

lol...when i post this n3 i forgot to put the here it is..


1clove of garlic chopped
1 inch of ginger cut in fine strips
carrots cut in strips (qty is depending on your liking)
1 red chili discard seeds and cut in strips - you can use half red chili and half green for colors
chicken cut in small pieces or chicken breast cut in strips
1 onion sliced thinly
vegetable oil for frying
1 tbsp oyster sauce
a couple of drops of sesame oil
a dash of sugar
100-150ml water (+-)

** if you notice i didn't use any salt as the oyster sauce is already salty so you won't need additional salt to it but pls do taste and adjust accordingly.

i think this is a chinese dish that somehow made its way to the malay palate... any how there are many many version of this dish but this is my version. made this the way my family likes it ^_^. its very easy to make...

first of all you need to get ready all ingredients before hand. cut all vegetables in strips, i cut it this way so that my son can eat it better. for some reason if i cut it in this manner or in some fun shapes he'll eat his veges. anyway it'll give a good presentation too. just like in the picture above. cut chicken in small pieces but you can always use boneless chicken and cut it in strips or cubes its fine. and you can substitute the chicken with any other game or seafood like squid or prawns...clean them and season with a bit of salt and pepper then set a side.

fry the chicken until cooked then set a side. with the same oil used for the chicken, take about a table spoon and heat it in a wok/pan then saute onion until fragrant then add in the garlic, ginger, chillies and carrots. stir fry until fragrant. in a bowl mix in the oyster soy sauce, sesame oil and corn flour and water about 100-150ml. then add in the vegetables stir and let it simmer for a while. it'll thickens slightly then remove from heat. arrange cooked chicken on to the serving plate and pour the gravy in. should the gravy become very thick you can always add in more water. (the consistency should be slightly loose than steak gravy). now you are ready to serve.

** as for the chillies, scrape out the seeds first then cut into strips as we want a clean chillies so it'll give a hint of heat instead a hot dish. but if you like it hot by all can even add in some bird eye chillies if you want. i made this as a children friendly dish so my kid can enjoy it!
