Ayam Siow (Peranankan Chicken in Tamarind Sauce)

45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
10 ingredients
4 servings
A classic Peranankan (Chinese with Malay heritage) recipe I got off Women's Weekly magazine to which I had made some adjustments. Yummy stuff esp if the taste of sweet brown sugar contrasted with the subtle tanginess of tamarind marinade appeals to you. You should be able to purchase tamarind pulp (assam) from asian supermarkets. Tried it and it's always a winner at family reunion dinners.
