Soy-made Chicken Sambal (Vegetarian)

Another week for Thaipusam celebration, I'm sure many of our Hindu friends have started fasting and being vegetarian for this much awaited festival. Cooking vegetarian dishes on these days can be boring if you don't try different varieties of dishes, in Malaysia soy made products are easily available especially in super markets and grocery shops. Last Sunday, I went to shop for these items and grabbed a few packs of soy chicken, fish and tofu to cook for the whole week.

The first dish for this week will be Soy-made Chicken Sambal, it may look spicy but actually it was more to a milder version of sambal compared to the usual ones I cook. now let's look at how I made this mouth-watering dish;

250 g of soy-made chicken
1 large onion sliced (optional)
1/4 cup of canned green peas
2 tbsp of chilli powder (mix with water to make into paste)
1 tsp of chilli sauce
1 tsp of soft brown sugar
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

In a pan, heat oil and fry the soy chicken and keep aside. In the same pan, reduce some oil and add in sliced onion fry until translucent then add chilli paste. Fry until the raw smell of the paste is gone then add some water and fried soy made chicken, let it boil. 

When its boiled and oil separates add in chilli sauce, soft brown sugar and salt to taste let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Now the gravy will thicken, adjust the seasoning and finally add the canned green peas and cook for 2 minutes. Our Soy-made Chicken Sambal is ready to be served. 

Do try and let me know how was it!
