Nyonyachef Xplore Turkey Recipe

A friend of mine just threw a turkey drumstick in my car and said to me, cook it !

It's not even Christmas ! Well, I don't like to waste food,..but again...
Turkey !? From it's character has not much taste, besides being tough.

Well, let's Xplore....

Finally, I remember one of my friend used to run a cafe called Turkey Delight,...just by selling turkey rice ! ??? Something different...right ? His version was East meets West, or more a less West meets East....check out the recipe

Huge thing ! Marinate overnight with salt, pepper, garlic, oyster sauce, all spice herbs & the secret is.....fermented beancurd.

Add some oil and fry the marinated turkey for 5 - 10 minutes, add in the chicken stock just slightly covering the turkey. Then throw in the rest, bay leaf, carrot, potato, onion & shitake mushroom, boil it for 15 minutes.

Turn down the heat and let it simmer for another 1 hr or till the turkey is tender. By then the stock will be reduced to half.

Add in salt & ground black pepper, to taste

That's how it looks like...cheers & Merry Christmas !
