Ingredients for "Ayam Bali"
(Click here for measurement conversion)
1 Onion, coarsely chopped
2 Garlic Cloves (I’d triple this, at least!)
1-3 hot Red Chili Pepper, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup toasted Cashew Nuts
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Palm Sugar or light Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Ginger
1 Tablespoon Peanut Oil
2 lbs boneless skinless Chicken thighs or boneless skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 inch or Coconut Milk
Additional toasted Cashew Nuts (to garnish)
Method of cooking "Ayam Bali"
Combine the onion, garlic, chili peppers, cashew nuts, lemon juice,soy sauce, sugar, and ginger in an electric blender or food processor and blend until it forms a smooth paste. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat and saute the chicken until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the blended mixture and cook uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the coconut milk, reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is tender and the sauce has thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Garnish with toasted cashews.
