Ayam Cah Jamur

Ayam Cah Jamur Tahu 
(Chicken with Mushroom and Soft Tofu)

Another childhood food to share.
My mother is kind of person who loves 30 minutes cooking. 
Until now she is never fancy to make rendang, gulai, curry, or any dishes that required hours of cooking (even though we love those dishes so much)

when I asked her, why she very seldom cook curry or rendang for us, she will have thousand reasons to answer :
1. Gaz and electricity is expensive
2. Cook too long make the food loose the nutrition
3. Stay too long near the heat damage my  skin
4. I am very busy, I got plenty thing to do rather than stay in front of stove

and on... and on... and on... LOL love you mom... :-)

One Sunday morning, on my regular walk around the complex.
Again, I like to say and keep repeating that walking is just so relaxing and stress relieving.
It doesn't really burn so much calories like run but (who cares...)
I just walk slowly, enjoy the surrounding and think about what to cook for dinner.

Ayam cah jamur is kind of less than 30 min cooking,
you can change and mix the ingredient as much as you like

the key ingredient is just: onion, garlic, white pepper, oyster sauce, and corn flour..
the rest are just follow what you have in the fridge :-)

200 gram boneless chicken, cut in a small bites
10 pcs mushroom, slices
1 carrot, peel and slices
1 pack soft tofu, cut in a small bites

1 yellow onion, slices
4 cloves garlic, slices
1/4 tbs salt
dash of white pepper
1/2 cup hot water mix with 2 tablespoon of oyster sauce
1 tbs corn flour mix with 1/4 cup water

fried the onion and garlic,
add in chicken and carrot.
add in 1/2 cup of hot water, oyster sauce and cover until the chicken cook.

5 minutes before served, add in tofu, corn flour, salt and pepper.

Served with hot steam rice :-)
