It’s the last weekend of Ramadan. Gosh, time really flies. I wanted to make Chef Wan’s briyani gam with chicken kuzi, but I was missing a few ingredients and I’ll only be going to the market tomorrow. Since I’ll also be eating out tomorrow, if I wanted to make something, tonight was my only window of opportunity to do so. I decided on Eman’s chicken mandy, which I’ve been meaning to try for quite some time now.
I fell behind schedule and ended up rushing to have it ready for buka puasa, so this time I skipped the smoking process and completely forgot the fried onion and cilantro garnish. Flavour-wise I think this was great, and the rice to water ratio was pretty spot on. The original recipe called for saffron coloring which was supposed to give the chicken a nice reddish tone, but since I don’t have any on hand and have no idea where to get it, I’m thinking of using smoked paprika next time.
Will definitely make this again.Read More
