Ayam Masak Merah

I cook today. Yey! ... It's been a while since I stepped in the kitchen heh... Since I'm on mc, I will slowly cook for myself and the husband.

Today Ayam masak Merah was a success.  I don't normally follow 1 recipe but a few so I can try and decide which one I will keep.  I have been following Mat Gebu for a few years now.  His recipes are nice and traditional for most. I like to take reference from his blog as the ingredients are easy too find and not so complicate. I refer to some other sites too lah... Slamat mencuba. Fuuuuuh I've always wanted to say that.

Recipe taken from:  Tiffinbiru (I alter the ingredients abit)
