Rendang Ayam (Chicken Rendang)

My favourite all time home-cooked food. 

In a chopper, blend 2 onions, 3 garlic cloves, ginger slices, turmeric (fresh), and fresh red chillies. Variation: Dried red chillies can be used too together with the fresh ones. Forgotten ingredient here: candlenuts.
In oil, fry the paste with one lemongrass and when the paste is cooked, add a couple pieces of kaffir lime leaves and one asam keping (asam piece).
Add in chicken pieces and let it cook a while till the chicken is half done.
When the chicken is half done, pour in one packet of coconut milk (KARA) and some water. Let the chicken cook completely and the gravy thicken.
Don't forget to add salt.
Serve with rice like my lunch today. Or eat with bread like what The Hubbster did today.
