Spicy Chicken Rendang Recipe By Chef Wan

Some people feel intimidates with making Rendang, but Don’t be! Making rendang is not difficult. The starting point to any Rendang is spice mix rich in lemongrass, galangal, shallot, garlic and chilies. Pieces of meat are slowly cooked in coconut milk and the spice mix until almost all of the liquid is gone, allowing the meat to absorb all of the complex flavours.

One thing, when you start making Rendang, your kitchen will smell delicious.

But remember, if you wanting the chicken skin crispy, it is like telling a French chef, why your coq au vin, chicken cooked in red wine, not having crispy skin.
