Pandan Chicken Stew

I love to make stew. It is yummy, plenty of gravy to flood your plate (some kids like that), and you can hide plenty of vegetables in there (great for picky eaters). Here is one I love to make: Pandan Chicken Stew.

1 chicken - cut into small pieces and season with a bit of salt
2-3 bulbs Garlic, 1 big onions and 1 stalk lemon grass -blend it all together
1 big onion - quartered
4-5 cloves garlic
3 inch ginger - slice
1 carrot - sliced
4-5 potatoes - quartered
3 stalks lemon grass - bruise it to get flavor out
3 pandan (screwpine) leaves
1/2 cube chicken stock (optional)

How to cook?
Fry the blended mix of garlic, onions and lemon grass until fragrant.
Put in the ginger as well.
Add in the chicken and cook for a few minutes.
Pour in water (however much gravy you desire). Usually I will transfer the chicken into a pot before I add water.
Throw in the carrots, potatoes, quartered onion and garlic cloves.
Don't forget to add the pandan leaves and lemon grass stalks.
Cover and let it stew over medium fire.
If you want, add about 1/2 cube chicken stock for better chicken flavor.
Towards the end, taste it and see if it needs more salt, sugar, soy sauce or whatever.

You could probably add celery to this stew too. Unfortunately, this cook don't like the taste of celery. Heheheh.

Enjoy, enjoy!
