Ayam Tumis Asam

If Kakak suka pasta, it's just not Tebby's cuppa. Nak makan sikit-sikit, rasa-rasa gitu-gitu je boleh lah. Before preparing spaghetti for Kakak, I did Ayam Tumis Asam. I think it's actually asam pedas. But since the original recipe says so, Ayam Tumis Asam then.

This recipe is actually taken from my mom's book, which I took from her, which she bought sometime in the 70's. My father was furthering his study then in USM. The book was bought in USM's bookshop. There's 2 actually. This one is more on lauk pauk whereas the other on kuih-muih. So, nengok ajelah rupanya buku zaman dolu-dolu.

It turned out okay. Just that Tebby did not like its thick gravy. The rest was okay. So, here goes the recipe..

Bahan-bahan
1. 1/2 ekor ayam - sesuai lah dengan isirumah kami yang tak seberapa ni kan. potong kecil dan bersihkan.
2. 1 kuntum bunga kantan - hiris halus
3. 1 batang serai - titik
4. 6 biji bawang merah*
5. 4 biji bawang putih*
6. Kunyit*
7. Lengkuas*
9. 2 suduB cili boh
10. Sedikit belacan*
11. 2 batang serai*
12. Daun kesom
13. Garam
14. Gula
15. Asam jawa

Cara-cara
- Panaskan sedikit minyak
- Campurkan bahan kisar dengan cili boh - bahan tumis
- Tumiskan bahan tumis bersama-sama bunga kantan dan serai yang dititik hingga naik bau dan pecah minyak. Jika terlalu pedas, boleh tambahkan sedikit gula.
- Masukkan ayam. Masak seketika, anggaran 5 minit hingga air keluar dan ayam sedikit masak
- Ramas asam jawa dengan sedikit air. Ambil airnya sahaja.
- Masukkan air asam jawa. Kacau rata.
- Masukkan 1/2 dari daun kesom.
- Perasakan dengan garam dan gula.
- Didihkan atas api perlahan hingga masak. Saya didihkan anggaran 20-20 minit.
- Tutup api dan masukkan lebihan daun kesom. Tutup periuk/kuali sebentar.
- Ready to serve!
