Chicken Rendang with Less Cholesterol

Typically Rendang uses a lot of coconut milk & cooked until dried up. Not only it is high in cholesterol but also time consuming. I changed the traditional method by browning the chicken in shallow oil before adding the rest of the ingredients and uses very little of coconut cream and yet it still produces tasty rendang without ones can tell that it has less coconut cream! Also, it cooked in less than half an hour! Try it....

Chicken Rendang is my son, AlongRiz's favourite. He left home less than a week ago but I miss him a lot. (Susah ler nak nelan benda niiii....uwaaa!)

8-10 pieces Chicken parts
1½ tsp Turmeric powder (½ for rubbing chicken & 1 tsp for cooking)

3 Shallots*
1" Ginger*
