I made this. Kinda. xD

Ayam Percik recipe from Chef Zam. So so good! My mum even asked me for the recipe because Carlson loved it.


For sauce (Ingredients A):

  • 5 cloves of shallots }
  • 1 clove of garlic          } blended
  • ½ inch ginger }
  • 2 tbsp chili pepper
  • 2 cups of thick santan
  • ¼ tbsp of fenugreek (halba)
  • 3 lemongrass (serai) stalks } crushed
  • Shrimp paste (Belacan)
  • Salt and sugar for taste 
  • ½ cup of water 
  • Cooking oil for sauté 

For marinating the chicken (Ingredients B):

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 4 cloves of shallots     }
  • 1 clove of garlic          }
  • 1 inch ginger } blended
  • 1 lemongrass (serai) stalk }
  • ½ tbsp coriander powder 
  • ½ tbsp cumin powder 

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Throw shallots, garlic, ginger and lemongrass into Philips blender with a bit of water (so it blends smoothly)

Step 2: Mix with coriander & cumin powder
Step 3: Marinate chicken for 20 minutes

Optional: Add turmeric powder to the marinate

Step 4: Using Philips Air Fryer, bake chicken for 10 minutes at 180°C. Make sure you heat it up earlier with the Double-Layer Tray.

Step 5: For the sauce, sauté blended ingredients with shrimp paste and chilli pepper until there is a fragrant smell. Stir evenly before adding water
Step 6: Add in santan and fenugreek, while stirring evenly
Step 7: Add in lemongrass
Step 8: Add salt and sugar for taste
Step 9: Sauté sauce for 20 – 30 minutes, or until thick.

Did I mention I'm afraid of using stoves because of the fire? lol.. So glad we were using a Philips induction cooker here xD

Step 10: Pour sauce over baked chicken (do this for 2-3 times) and bake for another 10-15 minutes, and it’s ready to serve. 

Because the ayam percik is so flavourful, it is suitable to go with a more plain tasting rice. Get the Chicken Risotto recipe to go with it! =)
