Chicken Popcorn

This is another favourite of the kids. It takes quite a bit of time and effort, but it’s worth it.

First you’d need to deep fry the chicken popcorn. Remember not to defrost it or it won’t be so crispy. Remove from deep-frying once the chicken popcorn starts to brown and set aside.

Next, you’d need to fry some butter. Once the butter has melted, toss in some curry leaves and let it pop for a minute or so. Then put in some salted egg powder and stir till you get a thick paste. Toss the fried chicken popcorn in this paste and you’re done.

Honey Garlic Chicken Wings

It may look complicated, except that it’s not. First, you simply bake your chicken wings in an oven until the skin is slightly brown. After that, toss the baked chicken wings into a heated pot. Add honey, chopped garlic, chopped ginger, sambal chilli, light soy sauce. Keep the heat low so the honey doesn’t burn.

Get the chicken wings well coated and glossy and you’re done.

One Minute Lockdown Dish

After seeing my beef rendang, you may think that it takes hours to cook beef. Well, it depends on which part you’re cooking. Cubes for stewing can really take up to 2 hours. For thin beef slices, it takes literally one minute.

This is stir-fried beef slices with black pepper sauce. Before frying, mix the beef slices with cornstarch. Next, heat up some oil, toss in the beef slices, then for this amount of beef, perhaps 1 tablespoon full of black pepper sauce.

Add a bit of water, stir rapidly and you’re done in one minute.
