Tea Party II

Yess! gugurls second get-together for tea at my house today. It's also an early celebration of my birthday.
They got me a beautiful gift basket of cakes and recipe book. Very sweet. I love it.

In here are - carrot walnut cupcakes, bread pudding and Gift From The Kitchen Book

Brilliant food gifts ideas

I love this. Shabbymom's homemade breadpudding. Perfect. And I still have 3 big slices in the fridge. I'm going to eat it with whip cream. Yes! weekend is for bingeing.

I served them my Hailam Chicken Rice. They loved it. As usual we had our tea at our favorite place, the terrace. Perfect weather and the kids are not 'shy-shy' anymore. They're running around making themselves home and they know where I stock my biscuits. Hahaha.. I wish they could stay overnight .

OK as requested, here is the recipe for the chicken rice.

Ingredients for Chicken & Rice

  • 1 whole chicken (cleaned and drained)
  • 2 cm ginger (crushed)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • a dash of sesame oil
  • 1 bulb garlic & 2 shallots (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 440g fragrant rice (washed & drained)
  • 1 daun pandan

Ingredients for 'Kuah Kicap'

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning powder
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon light soya sauce (kicap cair)
  • 200ml chicken stock

Mix these ingredients together. I suggest you double this recipe becos this is the 'killer' kuah. You would need more than a bowl of this.

Ingredients for Sauce - blend together all these :-

  • 100g chopped ginger
  • 50g chopped garlic
  • 50g chopped shallots
  • 200g chopped chillies
  • 5 kasturi limes (juice extracted)
  • 1 teaspoon tomato sauce
  • sugar and salt to taste

Steps :

  1. Boil sufficient water to cover chicken. Add in crushed ginger and salt. Simmer gently.
  2. Lower heat and add in chicken. Leave to simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken and immerse in cold water for 20 minutes. Remove and drain.
  4. Heat oil and saute the chopped garlic and shallots until fragrant. Add in rice and mix thoroughly.
  5. Transfer rice to rice cooker. Pour in the chicken broth. Put in daun pandan. Leave until rice is cooked.
  6. Brush chicken with sesame oil.
  7. This is my additional step : Roast in the oven at 250C for 40min. Don't forget to turn over.
  8. Cut chicken into sections. Pour 'kuah kicap' all over chicken. Serve the rice with the sauce.
