Chicken Porridge



Ingredients:
- 2 cups of rice
- 2 L water
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 carton chicken broth

Toppings:
- Shredded fried chickens
- Sliced chakwe bread
- Fried onions
- Sliced spring onions
- Padi oat crackers / Emping
- Sambal kemiri

I cooked this porridge with a slow cooker. I put all the porridge ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning before I left to work. When I got home in the evening, voila! I had chicken porridge done by itself without me stiring it.
So I after that I just need to fry the chicken, fry the emping and cut up the rest ingredients for the toppings.
I made kemiri sambal too which is red chillies, kemiri and garlic.
I serve it with one raw egg yolk in the bottom of my bowl, pour right away the hot porridge, put all toppings on top, and serve with soy sauce and sambal.
Phew! I finally had eaten what I've been craving all day yesterday since we had cold days lately.

Ampyang


My grandmother always brought me this when she came over our house in Jakarta. I missed my grandma so much and I missed when she left all of us to be with the Lord last year. I couldn't go home because I was ill. I really wanted to eat this so I tried to get the recipe online and found it. So simple and so easy to make.

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb peanuts with the skins still attach

  • 1 block palm sugar (about 200 gr)

  • 2 inches ginger

  1. Toast the peanuts in the skillet

  2. Grate the ginger and squeeze to get the liquid

  3. Cut palm sugar into chunk

  4. Put palm sugar and ginger in a pot, cook in low heat until sugar melt for about 10 minutes until you get the consistency of caramel sugar.

  5. Turn off the stove, add all the peanuts into the melted sugar.

  6. Righ away scoop one tablespoon on a greased aluminium foil or parchment paper quickly.

  7. Let it cool and ready to eat.
