One day, I discovered a container full of chicken feet in the freezer..... Lela, my kitchen companion, told me that she has been collecting them for the last few weeks (we consume 2 chickens a week, so it did not take long time to cumulate that many). I want to free up space in the freezer so I decided to cook them all at once.
I am a bit conscious the fact that chicken feet are high in cholestrol but I think occasional consumption should be ok. My children love this dish because the chicken feet are very tender and tasty after pressure cooked.
A plate of Chicken Feet
2 tbsp Oil
2 cloves Garlic*
1 inch Ginger*
1 tsp Pepper corns* (* pounded)
1-2 tbsp Chilli paste
1 Lemongrass - knocked a bit
Soya sauce sufficiently
1. Heat up oil in your pressure pot.
Fry lemongrass & all the pounded ingredients until fragrant.
Add in chilli paste & fry for a while until chilli paste is 'cooked' well.
Add in chicken feet and soya sauce sufficiently to cover the chicken feet.
No salt necessary. Add a bit of water just enough to cook the chicken feet.
2. Pressure cook according to your pressure pot instruction.
If you do not have pressure cooker, just cover & boil until they are tender.
3. Serve by itself or with white rice.
