Recipe Pressure Cooking Tamarind Chicken

Tamarind Chicken with Philips Electric Pressure Cooker

Wanted to have something sour, sweet and fragrant for dinner and I found those great ingredients combination just right inside my fridge. And having a pressure cooker comes handy, you can chuck them in at a go and start the cooking with a flick of a button. (two buttons to be exact). My tamarind chicken came out just nice as I wanted it to be. Sweet, sour and fragrant. Here I use Sakura chicken as I like the meat biting texture but normal chicken can do the task easily, just my preference. One more thing, there will definite be a lot of sauce at the end of the cooking, take some out and had it reduced over the stove within no time and pour the reduce sauce onto the chicken and serve.

Smells good, looks good definitely taste good !

Stir Fried Chicken with Sweet Basil

Sweet Basil with Chicken

I just love the smell of the sweet basil leaves. It gives such a fragrant and uniquely smell. You can find most Thai dishes consist of this sweet basil leaves. They really add flavour to any dishes. I found this leaves at SS17, Petaling Jaya wet market. They are sold in big bunch at a very reasonable and affordable price.

Usually the sweet basil leaves are used in scrambled egg as to give more flavour to the egg dish. As for myself, I use this sweet basil leaves for a chicken dish


Ingredients
300gm Diced chicken breast
50gm Sweet basil leaves
2bulbs Minced garlic
2tsp Fish Sauce
1Tsp Oyster sauce
1tsp Dark soya sauce
1 Cut chilli
1Tsp Cooking Oil
a pinch White Pepper
a pinch Sugar

Heat up the oil in the pan. When the oil is hot, put in minced garlic and half the amount of sweet basil leaves. Once the gralic is browned, stir in diced chicken. As the diced chicken is getting cooked, pour in fish sauce, oyster sauce and dark soya sauce. Stir fry the dish for few minutes. Once cooked, stir in the sweet basil leaves and cut chilli. Put in the white pepper and sugar. Now you can dish up the dish onto the serving plate.

Hope you will try this dish. It is simple, fast and yet will surprise you guest.
