Our Help Is In The Name Of The Lord

Ayam Goreng Berempah is aromatic Malay spiced fried chicken.  I cooked this dish as a main dish for my nasi lemak meal.

The ingredient list is long but it is actually quite a simple dish to put up. This dish is also a good change from my usual chicken wings or ayam rendang when cooking a nasi lemak meal. The aromatic spiced crumbs are very good to go with the rice. Do not discard the crumb bits away after frying your chicken, otherwise you are missing the best part of this dish!

Ayam Goreng Berempah

1 kg chicken meat, cut into medium-size pieces
1 tsp serbuk jintan putih(cumin powder)
1 tsp serbuk jintan manis (fennel powder)
1 tsp serbuk ketumbar (coriander powder)
1 tsp chilipowder
1/2 tsp tumeric popwder
1 tbsp curry powder (meat type)
1 tbsp corn flour
1 and 1/2 tsp salt

Blend into paste

4 garlic cloves
6 shallots
1/2"galangal (blue ginger)
1/2" ginger
4 lemongrass
3 tbsp water


  • Marinate chicken pieces with all ingredients for several hours.
  • Heat oil in a wok(sufficient to fry al chicken at one go) over medium to low heat, put marinated chicken into hot oil piece by piece, deep fry till golden brown (about 10-15 mins)
  • Once done, remove fried chicken and also the fried spiced crumbs using a strainer and keep aside to drain excess oil.
  • Serve hot.

When the going gets tough, God gets tougher!
Focus of this psalm is not the troubles but God is with us and deliver us. We can depend on our Lord for he is faithful. God took us through our troubles.

If the Lord had not been on our side ------
let Israel say-----
If the LORD had not been on our side 
when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept us away. Praise be to the Lord who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler's snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 124:1-8


  1. Hi Lian,
    Ayam Goreng Berempah served with nasi lemak is so flavourful. Yeah agree with you the crumb bits add the tasty & crunchy to the taste ^-^!

  2. Hi Lian,

    I see a bowl of achar in the background of your fried berempah chicken... and all I can think is to eat this dish with plain steamed rice and achar... LOL!
