Thai chicken rice (khao man gai)

ข้าวมันไก่ (khao man gai)

Khao man gai is a common street food in Thailand, you can find these in everywhere you go. They some with sauce made from soy bean and soup from boiling chicken. But nowadays it's hard to find the delicious restaurant to give a entrust for our belly LOL. That why I've made it today :) In traditional way we use whole chicken but I'll use just drumstick with thigh. Why I didn't use chicken breast, because if you use chicken which come with bone they will give you more tender and moisture :) you can remove skin if you don't like it.

I will seperate into 3 part for this menu.
  1. Chicken and broth  >>>>           
  2. Rice                       >>>>           
  3. Sauce                     >>>>           
You will need : (5 serving)
  • 4 L. water
  • 500g. chicken drumstick with thigh
  • 100 g. ash gourd
  • 4 slices ginger
  • 4 small rock sugar
  • 1 ts. salt
  • 1 tbs. fish sauce

  • 2 cups uncooked Thai jasmine rice
  • 1 tbs. chopped garlic
  • 3 slices ginger
  • 2 tbs. cooking oil
  • 3 cups broth from boiling chicken

  • 3 tbs. soy bean paste
  • 2 ts. sugar
  • 4 ts. lime juice
  • 1+1/2 tbs. broth from boiling chicken
  • 4 tbs. chopped ginger
  • 3 tbs. chopped garlic

                *Ingredients for sauce can adjust to your taste.
