  3. i was just watching AFC on chef wan this afternoon and he was cooking this ayam masak merah along with 2 other rendang dishes. I’m not really sure if i had eaten this dish, maybe i have but didnt know the name and it sure looks so attractive and unique flavour due to the ketchup and the spices in it. Wonderful guest post and so appropriate during this festive season!

  6. Beautiful photos by Lisa! Ayam masak merah just reminds me of ayam masak habang, a Kalimantan chicken cooked in red chili sauce. Habang = Merah :)

    Perfect for Eid!

  7. I loved this recipe.. Planning to make it in the next week.
    I have a question, can we omit galangal or is there any other substitute for it? Will the dish taste as wonderful even without galangal?

  8. I cooked this today. I like the taste but the coconut milk has a taste. I live in Minnesota and I bought the Aroy-D coconut milk for cooking. Any suggestion what type of coconut milk is the best to get in USA/

    • I love Ayam Masak Merah and will cook this tonight for Ramadan. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      GSN: Depending where you live (I live on US East Coast) many of the bigger grocery stores now have an Indian or Oriental/ International sections for these spices. If not, they are easily obtained from an Indian grocery market (I’m assuming you are not living in Malaysia or Singapore). Many Asian supermarkets in bigger cities also stock these basic spices as well as galangal and lemongrass -they’re now easier to obtain now thanks to a bigger interest in Thai and East Asian cooking in this country. Of course, nothing beats getting these items fresh from home.

  11. Hi, was wondering what kind of canned tomato soup (the creamy ones?) Or which brand do u normally use? Missing this dish and I’m planning to cook it during Ramahdan.

  12. How many ml of tomato soup does the recipe calls for? And what brand of vanned tomato soup are you using?
