Chicken Kurma

You know… I wrote a couple posts about Vladimir Vladimirovich last week right? And you know what? My daily page views went straight to the toilet the entire week. I guess people are paranoid when seeing even his picture huh? That’s kind of bad news to be honest, because it means the Soros controlled mainstream media has been successful in…

Well, never mind. Anyway, I mentioned the other day that I probably will talk about chicken kurma. So here I am, talking about chicken kurma.

I bought this can of… thing in the supermarket last weekend…

What attracted me was that Sajian Istana Di Zalam Silam. Palace Cuisine In Ancient Times. Is it?? I always thought this is an Arab dish of some sort, so it is quite shocking to find out that it is in fact, a Malay dish. Hmm…

Anyway, there were a few brands, but I chose this one because of what they listed down in their ingredients list…

Notice what’s missing there? Apart from MSG (which is unavoidable anyway), there isn’t any other xxxxx xxxate or yyyyy yyyate in sight. Meaning there’s no crap artificial preservatives in there, unlike the rest. And since this is a Keluaran Bumiputera, we can be rest assured that they do not lie, can’t we? After all, (I’m sad to admit) it is usually the Chinese/foreign business people that mislead people, no? Keyword here being usually, there are always exceptions…

So yeah…

Let’s have a look…

Woooo…

Looked kind of oily from here, but I guess that is to be expected with all canned food…

Now at this point of time, I would like to show you how I made rice and boiled some broccoli and poured this over the rice and broccoli, but when resizing the pictures, I accidentally [Shift Del]’ed the subsequent pictures. In case you don’t understand [Shift Del], it means permanently deleted.

So… no more pictures… arghhhhh!!!

It was a pretty mild flavoring chicken kurma though. I’ve had more flavorful kurma in hotel buffets. But I kind of like it. One thing that I was disappointed yet overjoyed was that the chicken inside were pieces with bones still attached. I was expecting boneless bit so these chicken pieces made my eating experience unexpectedly more troublesome. Still, this means they are using real chicken as opposed to probably some genetically processed chicken I suppose 🙄 …

Also I would like you guys to know that I have been busy working the past couple of weeks. Not my freelance or book work. Actual commitments from my day job. I’m not trying to justify my continued sporadic absence in managing my blog… I’m just saying… oh whatever… 🙄

  1. Aiyoh.. all the pictures deleted? Never mind, next time do this dish again and show us.. maybe next time you try the packets instead of cans.. see got difference or not. I normally buy Tean brand and some say A1 packets are good… yet to try…

  2. I may be a health conscious person but many times we need to close our eyes and just eat straight from cans la. I pity the people in the Rohingya and Syrian wars have no food to fuss about. I remembered how I survived my student days camping at Batu Ferringhi and just name it, I ate all the brands from Yeo’s, Ayam Mas, Ma Ling, Cap Teko, Golden Bell, Aeroplane and etc etc.. besides all the toxic substances. I survived! LOL

    • Yalah… cannot worry so much… but it is good to at least “try” to pick the less unhealthy ones, right?

  3. nice and delicious dish! but I seldom eat canned meat….whether they are using authentic ‘real’ chicken or whatsoever…they are still processed meat and….yea…u know what are the consequences…The real kurma chicken can be easily available in malay nasi campur stalls…so I normally get my fix from there 😉
    It’s year end, so understandable everyone is busy…to close-off projects and get a better points for year-end appraisal…So, I guess u r not alone (with that absent from blogosphere)

    • I seldom tapao from Malay nasi campur stalls unfortunately. And usually when I tapao, I go boneless, anything with bones, I ignore. 🙄

  4. I thought you cooked chicken kurma with those ready made pastes 🙂 Anyway, I don’t like canned curry. Got weird taste and the chicken texture also weird. The only ones I have tried is Yeo’s chicken curry.

    • I saw that brand too, and another well known brand. But they all have a few xxxxx xxxate and yyyyy yyyate in the ingredients list, so I set them aside…

  5. Do you think the fewer visits were related to the Putin themed posts? (Well, could be, I think many people don’t really like politics). Page views have been lower than usual for me during the last 2 months, and I noticed other blogs have fewer comments than usual. People busy with other things? Slow times for blogs? Me writing boring-er than usual posts? Who knows…

    • Well, I cannot say for others, but I have been reading blogs less recently, but that’s because I was in a rut and then there’s work commitments so it is personal. With my blog views though, it has been pretty consistent up till last week, even on weeks when I have not blogged much. But last week, after the Putin posts, they kind of halved all through the week. Today they start climbing again. I can’t help but wonder if there is a correlation you know… 🙄

  6. Although “zaman silam” does mean ancient times, I’d probably translate it as palace cuisine in olden days…don’t sound so ancient, medieval, prehistoric? Wakakakaka! 😀 I don’t mind chicken with bones but some of these canned stuff, the chicken is cooked for so long until not only the meat is tender but the bones also become brittle and that’s when you get bits of it in the sauce…that I hate! 😉

    • I know, but ancient times sound more dramatic, isn’t it? And I’m not even mistranslating it or anything so it is a win-win heh 😀 😀 ..

      This one, the meat was tender and the bones were not brittle. I think it was a good one… relatively good one by canned food standards…

  7. Canned chicken kurmah? How much is it?

    I am also busy these days, so much on. My highly intelligent friend but lacks the common sense shot me a text with the words as long as you’re P-off with me. It’s all all right for some who has not worked for a very long time and still relies on her elderly father for financial support 😳. Strange, how the mind works when others are busy. Yeah, whatever!

    • It was RM 6-ish…

      Well yeah, good that you realize the difference in perspectives. Sometimes people say/behave as they do not because they are intentionally malicious or what, but because they have had differing experiences and view things differently. Being able to agree to disagree is very important in my opinion.

  8. The term chicken kurma is new to me, is the taste quite the same as curry chicken? From the look of it, it looks like curry chicken

    Work is more important, after you finished all your work, you can then come back to blog

    • It looks kind of like rendang. Not that I know whether rendang in Singapore looks the same as rendang in Malaysia or not. 🙄

  9. You did not heat this up before pouring over your rice? I like to eat chicken kurma so I wonder whether I will like this.

    I am over with chicken on bones but which part of the chicken did they give? I hope not those fatty parts. If chicken breast meat, then I like it more.

    Please rest more after working all day and most nights on your day job, no need to update here. I have been busy too so I did not leave comments on the regular blogs that I read and I also did not even reply comments on my blog.

    • Well, I poured them over warm rice, so that kind of heated them up hehehehe!

      There was a chunk of breast, and a drummet, and… some other bits. Well it is canned food so it probably isn’t as good as what you get from the warungs or restaurants…

  10. Very nice branding. From the can, it looks like ordinary chicken tumeric to me. Maybe they left the bone in to that the flavour from the chicken bone will seep into the sauce. More flavour. Then again, from your verdict you have had better chicken kurma 🙄

    Go, go work. You don’t bother us, we don’t bother you and then you can finish all your work. Then come back and entertain us 🙄

    • It is kind of like rendang type of dish, I can’t tell the differences between them both. But I reckon the Malays can… 🙄
