Ayam Tauco (Chicken Cooked With Salted Yellow Recipe
1 medium roasting chicken
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp dark soya sauce
3 tbsp tauco (salted yellow beans)
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp paprika (optional)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup tamarind water
1 cup water
This recipe calls for 'tauco' which can be either salted black beans
or salted yellow beans. Either can be found in a Chinese market as
salted black bean or salted yellow bean sauce. Or you can track down
Indonesian salted yellow beans and smash 'em up yourself. Thai
markets carry them.
Cut the chicken into serving pieces; wash, and dry. Slice the onions.
Pound the garlic and the tauco into a smooth paste.
Fry the onions in the oil for half a minute. Add the tauco, then the
chicken. Stir well, so that every part of the chicken is coated with
tauco. Put in the soya sauce and the rest of the ingredients. Cover,
and simmer very gently for 45 minutes. Then take the lid off, and
cook for a further 5 minutes to reduce the sauce. Serve hot.
Makes 4 servings.

Food Tips of the Week

Some lower carb diet guidlines:
* Don't miss meals

* Know what is in your food
Don't trust advertizing that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the product. A good number of are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
