Gulai Lemak Cili Padi Ayam Kampung & Nangka

another entry!! this is my favourite ever!! my grandma's Gulai Masak Lemak Cili Api Ayam Kampung dengan Nangka. well, all food cooked by grandma are good. can't decide which is best :P but this one is a bit kampung authentic because it uses chicken which my grandpa's breed and nangka which a neighbour gave to my grandma. being Negeri Sembilan pure residents with majority of Minang people, of course you can't be separated with Masak Lemak Cili Api right? tell the truth, i don't really good with the exact recipes. i just took these pictures while helping my grandma cooking this. she sat on the chair and give me orders on what to do :P

this is home-grown chicken, nangka, 2 stalk of lemongrass and blended spices. if i'm not mistaken, the spices are:
bird-eye chillies (compulsory!)
fresh turmeric (optional, you can use turmeric powder as subtitution)

you mix the spices and chicken over the heat and stir until drier. chicken will release water when being heated up, so, keep on stirring until the water is dry and chicken & nangka are well mixed with the spices and fragrant.

then, pour in coconut milk. the more coconut milk you pour, the milkier & tastier it gets. but, mind the calories :P keep on stirring until chicken is cooked and nangka is tender. you have to continuously stir as to avoid the bottom from burnt.

so..this is the result..yummmms. looks delicious isn't it??

here goes, another close-up picture. oh no, and now i'm craving for this!! T_T

too bad, most restaurants that serve Gulai Masak Lemak Cili Padi aren't lemak enough for my preference. well, coconut is getting pricey these days, of course they want to cut cost. still prefer my grandma's. need to learn how to cook this ASAP!


  1. x suka nangka. Tapi kalau masak dlm masak lemak, sgt suka :D

  2. sama lah..kalau masak dalam masak lemak baru suka. nak pulak kalau dapat nangka muda..lembut..sedapnya..yum yum
