Background

This is one of my personal favourites. The saltiness and spiciness of the wonderfully thick tomato sauce make this dish explode with flavours to tantalize your taste buds. Do not mistake this dish with other sweet sour dishes. This is a totally different flavour altogether.

I adore the slight hint of spiciness in the dish. Normally, chicken meat is mixed with plain flour before they are fried. In this recipe, turmeric is added to the flour. The addition of the turmeric enhances the flavour of the fried chicken meat, thus could be eaten just as they are. If you are someone like me who loves flooding your plate of rice with gravy, this is the perfect dish for you!

Spicy Tomato Chicken is also known as: Ayam Masak Merah
