Kitchree (Spiced Yellow  Dal with Rice) Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A combination of rice and yellow lentils  make this a nutritious meal. I serve  my  Kitchree or Kitchari  with Ayam Masak Merah (Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce),

You can  make this rice on stove top  following my  recipe below or use rice cooker.

For rice cooker, fill your cooker with water, milk, yogurt, salt and turmeric and bring to boil by pressing the 'cook' button.  In a separate pan, heat the ghee, fry onion,  cinnamon, cardamom,, cloves, ginger and garlic till fragrant.

Once the water is boiling, add in rice, lentils and the fried  spices.  close lid.  You need not worry about burnt rice, the rice cooker would take care  for you.

Ayam Masak Merah /Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This chicken is cooked in a spicy red sauce that was a popular choice here. Ayam Masak Merah / Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce  got its color from chili paste, chili sauce and tomato sauce. .

Before you start, prepare the chicken by coating with turmeric and salt  then fry until half done.

Also get ready those  ground ingredient.  Cut dried  chili into small pieces, wash and boil .  Drain then grind into smooth paste together with ginger and garlic.

Have added a cup of water but this depends how thick you want the gravy to be.

You can use white sugar instead of brown sugar as brown sugar makes this Ayam Masak Merah / Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce a bit dark in color..
