Chicken Pongteh Sedap


Most commonly found where they are nyonyas in Malacca and Penang (and some say in JB),  it was awesome for us kids because it was just chicken and potatoes! Try this heart-warming dish if you’re looking for something to pair with other stir-fried dishes, as is popular with most Asian dinners.


Recipe Ingredient
1 chicken (generally will weigh about about 1 to 1.4kg) - chopped small
5 pieces medium potatoes
5 medium red onions - chopped finely
4 cloves garlic - chopped finely
1cm ginger - grounded into paste
1tbsp taucu (bean paste)
3 tbsp soy sauce (may add more or less according to liking)
2 tbsp shaved gula melaka
sprinkling of pepper



  1. Saute chopped onions till fragrant and golden brown.
  2. Add in ginger paste, saute lightly and add in chopped garlic.
  3. Add in taucu and saute.
  4. Add in chicken pieces and potatoes and saute till fragrant and golden brown. Remember to toss them from time to time to prevent burning.
  5. Pour in soy sauce and top up with water till chicken pieces are 3/4 covered. Cover and cook for 10 mins till chicken pieces are tender and the sauce is reduced to about 1/2.
  6. Add in gula melaka and pepper. Season according to your liking!
  7. When you're happy with the taste, turn off the fire and the dish is ready to serve!
  8. Best served with piping hot rice!
