I eat chicken offal rarely. But, it doesn't mean me and family do not like it. Maybe, it because i have no idea how to cook it. For one day, Abang tukang sayur brought chicken hearts and i was challenged to cook it. And as usual for something new, i spent too much time looking for the recipe and my laziness attacked me suddenly. Those offal finally spent much much time in freezer, yeaaah... freezing for a week until my mood came. Lol!
The recipe is simple but not easy anyway just like many Indonesian recipes. I used 1 pound chicken offal ( mixed between chicken hearts and ampela - i don't know name of ampela in English, sorry!), boiled until cooked with 1 tbsp of coriander powder. For the spices, blend 10 cloves onion, 4 garlic, 8 nutmeg, 4 red chili, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp brown sugar, 1 tsp tamarind water. Do not forget to use kaffir lime leaves and sliced red chili when you saute it with little bit oil. I put sweet soy sauce slightly, salt, and sugar. The result was great coz this food runs out without any grumble from the kiddos. My husband wouldn't dare to issue any complaint about my food, so i guess this is okay according to his taste. For me? Ugh.. I suggest not too much eat offal for your health coz if you try this, you can't stop eat this and will add rice in you plate. Lol!
