Verdict : taste good and it's something different from normal curry chic that i have had.
The recipe :
a cup of plain yogurt,
2 tblspoons garam masala (approx 25-30 gms)
1 teaspoon ginger - crushed
1 teaspoon salt
3 lb chicken, skinless; cut in pieces
1 oil 2 oz butter
1 cinnamon stick -- 1 inch
6 green cardamoms
1/4 pint sour cream
1/4 pint cream
salt to taste
2 teaspoon almonds, ground (optional - i didn't put in this)
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch (optional - i didn't put in this)
ps : i modified the recipe a bit by adding chili powder, potatoes, lots of onions and some garlic (maybe u could try this too)
Mix yogurt, ginger, salt and rub into chicken. Let it marinate overnight.
Place in an ovenproof dish and brush with oil. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 40-50 minutes. Save the liquid, if any.
In a saucepan, melt butter and fry cinnamon, cloves and cardamoms for 1 minute.
Add sour cream and chicken liquid. Add cream. Cover and simmer gently for 5-6 minutes.
Add chicken pieces and adjust seasoning. Add ground almonds. Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to the chicken.Let it thicken.
Cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.

I cooked all these this morning :) looks good isn't? The chicken curry is added with some pounded indian spices and dried chilis. Something different from my original recipe.
The frangrant rice on the other hand, is cooked with butter, lots of indian spices and shallots.

Seems like most of the people eating the porridge also order chicken, i tell you hor, this is not plain chicken dish, the texture is so smooth you want to order another dish..hehehe..usually I order half a chicken when eating there with my wife and two sons!
Don't underestimate this bowl of plain looking porridge, actually this stall in Seremban has many year's of history in chee chup chok business.
There are many customers weekday or weekend, especially on weekend, you gotta wait and wait..and my strategy is standing beside the table which you see is going to finish..just stand there and stare at the food (and LHS if you want, let the saliva drip)..they will feel very uneasy and quickly finish and go!
Viola! You got the table for yourself, muahahahaha!
I love laksa!
In Seremban, there are two shops selling good laksa a.k.a. Asia Laksa, you can find one at Jalan Tok Ungku, another at Senawang.
Both are brothers also, guess good food have siblings rival..they inherited the secret ingredient and ways to make good laksa from the parent, and established their own business lor..
You gotta try to belip it! Dunno the way? Call me lor when you drop by at Seremban, lemme be the guide..kekeke
Well, since this is all about food..I am pleased to introduce to you ze famous Seremban hakka mee!
There are stalls managed by the brothers, one at Pasar Besar Seremban, the other is at town, behind Maybank.
You have have purely hakka noodle or mixed with lou shee fun, very nice!
