Chicken Pongteh


I came across the word "Pongteh" through Masterchef Amita in cow's tongue challenge. I didn't watch the episode but my mum, she just loves to update me on what ever happens in Masterchef. Nowadays she will update me on Ustaz Don. T_T

Pongteh requires Tau Cheo and Chinese Mushrooms (Dried Shitake Mushrooms). This would be my first time handling such ingredients. The seller even gave my mom tips on how to soak the mushrooms: put some sugar.

Chef Wan's look more tempting
I followed Chef Wan's recipe but I didn't have patience to wait until it simmers (20-25 minutes) and I think the taste is already good at that point..hehe..I will definitely be making this again!

Wow, love your take one this nyonya dish.
Simmering it for 25 minutes will make it more tender, but if one likes it to have more bite, won't need so long.
