One of the staple dinner dish that my mother cooks, braised soya meat! The soft and tender texture resulted from the braised coupled with a piping hot bowl of rice makes the perfect, heartwarming dinner! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken or 1 kg of pork

  • Eggs (depends on how many u want)

  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • 1 liter of water

    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 Cardamon 
    • 1 star anise 
    • 1 clove

  • Seasoning:
    • 2 tablespoon of light soya sauce
    • 2 tablespoon of dark soya sauce
    • 2 tablespoon of oyster sauce
    • 4 tablespoon of sweet soya sauce or Kecap Manis
