Ching, your Chicken Kapitan looks very yummy. Does it taste like Chicken Rendang?

Little Corner of Mine said...

Edith,
Thanks! It's from Lup Hoong premix! :P We need to add ground onion, oil, chicken and coconut milk.

Tazz,
Thanks! No, it doesn't taste like rendang, the spices used is different I think. But it has the rendang consistency.

Oops, it's Hup Loong (Penang Nyonya Recipe).
