Cencaluk Chicken (Ayam Cencaluk)

Cencaluk shrimps appeared for short while in Miri and that means you can find fresh Cencaluk & Belacan in the fresh market. I've been waiting for Cencaluk to try out this popular dish by CMG and only now I have the opportunity to do so. It is such a special taste and very delicious. Even my two sons love it.
