One of my all-time most favourite dish is the “Ayam Lemak Cili Padi” or loosely translated as Chicken in Coconut Gravy with Birds’ Eye Chili”. The spiciness is addictive.
It is of no surprise that my love for this dish goes way back to my childhood; and the best Lemak Cili Padi Dish I ever had is none other than the one made by my own mother. Be it with chicken or with fish, they can be oh-so-mouth-watering. The dish will leave you craving for more even though you would be smokin’ away from its spiciness!
I have been cooking this dish every once in a while over the years, and I only realised that I have yet to post the recipe on my blog.
It is a simple and unassuming dish – and I always top it with a dash of kicap manis (sweet black sauce) after scooping it on my rice.
