this is my own concoction of the famous Ginger sauce that goes with the Samsui Chicken. Hubby said its very good. Razz Maybe because I have added home made Rice wine. coffee



this is old ginger. The skin is darker, usually a light brown.


this is young ginger. You can tell by the skin. its lighter in colour, sometimes almost 'translucent'.

Yields 100g
Ingredients
50g young ginger
50g old ginger
50ml sesame oil
2 tbsp Rice wine(get a good brand, if not, use home made ones)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp Chicken oil(rendered from chicken fat)

Method
1. Blend ginger with chicken oil, sesame oil till fine.
2. Mix it in a small glass pot or ceramic bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
3. Leave it aside to stand for 2 hours.
4. Serve with cold chicken.

Notes
uneaten ginger sauce to be kept in the fridge for upto 2 weeks.
if you want a more spicy ginger flavour, use more old ginger.

no wine, omit it. if not use a very good white wine. best to use a sweet wine.

Gina is there any way to subsitute chicken oil?

How did you 'extract' the chicken oil? Take the fats and cook it? Planing to make this sauce for a function on Sat kekeke

Irene

of course you can substitute chicken oil for corn oil. But the fragrance is not there.

yes, its just to take out the yellowish fat at the cavity area of the chicken. Put it into the wok and fry over high heat. it will melt and what is left there is the oil and dried up fat.

same method with the pork lard oil.. Wink

this is the fats you use to cook the chicken rice. so that is why the HPB(Health Promotion Board of Singapore) says chicken rice is very unhealthy for hypertension, heart problem patients.
