I finally made good my promise to cook Janet, "sotong masak lemak kunyit cili api" , but I changed it to chicken (chicken cooked with tumeric coconut milk). The ingredients are as follows: Chicken, 2 inches fresh turmeric, a pinch of fresh turmeric leaves, "asam keping" (to give the broth its sour taste), 1/2 inch shrimp paste, 2 cups diluted coconut milk, chilles.
The result is as pic below. The photo is not very photogenic tho'. The first pic, is my garden helper, supershabbymom's daughter Hananh Sofea. She was very good in "helping" me to hold the turmeric, whilst I was digging from her mom's backyard. The problem was, she was so smitten with the turmeric, she won't let it go!
