Suhara Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Serves: 6 

  • 2 pieces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2 cm cubes
  • 10 cm galangal, peeled and grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  1. Squeeze out the juice from the grated galangal and set aside. Marinate the chicken pieces in the galangal juice for 1-2 hours.
  2. Fry the dry grated galangal in oil until crispy and set aside.
  3. Heat a little oil in pan and saute the sliced garlic till fragrant. Add the marinated chicken pieces, stir-fry till it's cooked then add the beaten eggs and scramble together. It should be a soft scramble, so add a bit of water of it's too dry.
  4. Just before you turn off the heat, add the crispy grated galangal to the dish and serve hot.
