Turmeric Chicken Leg For Dinner

This was last Thursday. It was drizzling when we woke up but after a while it stopped.

It was 7:08am and still dark when we reached the school.
7:14am
8:07am - having completed our walk.
8:10am - facing Kledang Hill.
Yellow ginger or turmeric leaves from my garden.
Yellow ginger or turmeric flower (old image taken in 2017).
Yellow ginger or turmeric harvested from a single pot - Nov. 2021.
After air dried, I removed the tiny roots from the turmeric rhizomes and wrapped it with paper tissue and then into a plastic bag to be kept in the fridge.
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner without rice for 2
I took out some yellow ginger or turmeric, pound it with some garlic and shallots, added in some salt, chili powder, oyster sauce and honey. I used this paste to marinate 2 chicken legs.
Thinking back, I should have deboned the chicken legs since I decided to pan fried the chicken legs. Plus, it will be easier and shorter cooking time.
The napa cabbage had this colour is because I used back the same oil for frying the chicken legs to saute the napa cabbage.

Our earthly fathers trained us for a few brief years,
doing the best for us that they knew how,
but God's correction is always right and for our best good,
that we may share his holiness.
Being punished isn't enjoyable while it is happening - it hurts!
But afterwards we can see the result,
a quiet growth in grace and character.
So take a new grip with your tired hands,
stand firm on your shaky legs, and mark out a straight,
smooth path for your feet so that those who follow you,
though weak and lame, will not fall
and hurt themselves but become strong.
(Hebrews 12:10-13, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. Good grief! Your kunyit is SO FAT!!! What fertiliser do you use?

    My leaves are big - good for wrapping fish and what not to be baked in the oven (in place of banana leaves - has an added fragrance) but the kunyit...so miserable, very small. Sad!!!

    Chicken looks yummy!

  7. When it warms up and I´m still working from home I think I will copy your morning walks.
    Wow, I never saw - or knew - ginger has leaves. Hmmm, will buy some ginger again!
    And, hmmmm... chicken! (I prefer breast, though). Never heard of that chicken, but getting hungry now! Nice plate, too.

    1. Thank you, Iris. I hope you get to enjoy your morning walks. I like the back portion with less meat. My younger son loves breast meat.

  15. Turmeric does look a lot like ginger, i had no clue that it was also called yellow ginger but i can see why it is.

  16. How lucky you are to be able to harvest ginger! From what I see, the flower is turmeric. Do you have them differentiated or is it the same for you: ginger and turmeric. I have the doubt.
