A GUEST POST ON RASA MALAYSIA ~ SPICY HONEY CHICKEN ~ AYAM MASAK MADU



Like those before me I was ecstatic to be invited to guest post on Bee's blog Rasa Malaysia. It is the food blog that every food blogger aspires to guest post on. Bee asked me if I would be interested. Was she kidding?! If there is a hole in my roof I think I just made it.

Hers is one of the first blogs I scrolled through in my early days of blogging and still follow silently because my jaw hangs each time I stop by. Everything seems professional, the recipes precise, the photography perfect and most of all her repertoire of dishes are endless. It was and still is sheer inspiration. And here I am now making my little mark and taking up a teeny space on the famous food blog of Rasa Malaysia. Imagine that!

Bee has published her first cookbook called Easy Chinese Recipes. I think everyone interested in Chinese cooking or who collects cookbooks  should get it. If Bee's blog is anything to go by I'm sure her cookbook is a treasure.

Spicy Honey Chicken is quite akin to the Malay Ayam Masak Merah (red cooked chicken). In both, tomato ketchup is one of the main ingredients used. It is the Malay version of a Chinese sweet and sour chicken.

Please go over to Bee’s Rasa Malaysia for the rest of the post and recipe ~

Zurin - thanks for guest posting on Rasa Malaysia. I miss Malay food so much and wish I can one plate of nasi campur Melayu right now, with extra sambal on the side. :)

Congrats on the guest post Zurin! And thank you for contributing this delicious dish for us :)

Shu Han said...

I found you from MM, which I took part in too (: sounds AND looks absolutely delicious! thanks for sharing this! is this the same as ayam masak merah? just wondering, because they look so similar and I love that dish!

Zurin said...

Shu Han,
It is similar but not the same. Ayam masak merah has more sauce because it has more ground onions. This is less saucy. Yes they do look kind of the same dont they? :)

A big congrats Zurin. Sounds like it meant a lot to you to feature on Rasa Malaysia. I hope it signals big things for you - Im your number one fan and know how much you deserve anything good that comes your way. A Malay cookbook is niggling at me. How about you? Written by you that is!!!

PS. Love the description of your photos as "eye candy" - and yes, I agree. Mariana xxx
