I have been collecting a few dishes of chicken leftovers, ayam masak kicap la, goreng kunyit la, masak kari la, roast chicken la, round them all up, bits and pieces of them, and began to carik the flesh. Whilst carik-mencariking, thought to dish up a new presentation of the chicken flesh. Yes, the flesh, the chunky ones. And below was what I came up with.
Cobblers are basically savoury scones. There are a complete meal in one dish and requires minimal preparation- I loike.
Prepare your chicken, you can use leftovers or boil the fleshy parts of the chicken before tearing them to pieces. You need around 10 big fleshy pieces.
My leftover chicken. I washed them up first.
It should look like this.
You also need a stick of carrots(grated)
2 sticks of celery, (thinly sliced)
Yellow onion, also sliced or cubed.
you can add mushrooms or any other vegetables you like. I only had carrots at the time.
Half cup of milk
half cup of water mixed with 1 tablespoon of cornflour
1 tablespoon of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
A sprinkle of shredded cheese, the more the merrier
salt and pepper to taste
Lightly fry the onions till fragrant. Add the carrots and other vegetables and let it blend with the onions for 5 minutes. Pour in the milk and the cornflour mix. Then add in the tomato and the Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Cook till everything is well incorporated and has thickened. Remove it from the wok to your oven dish. Leave it to cool.
For the cobbler
300gm of all purpose flour,
1/4 teaspoon of salt,
4 teaspoon of baking powder,
100gm of chilled butter(cubed)
1/2 cup milk,
1 tablespoon of Mayonnaise,
Sift all the dry ingredients, flour, salt, baking powder. Rub in the butter until it crumbs. Pour in the milk and mayo and knead everything till it forms a workable ball.
Refrigerate for ten minutes. After that just roll out and drape it over your oven dish with the chicken filling tadi. Traditionally cobblers ni are formed into balls just like scones and place ontop of the cooked chicken. But I was too lazy to do that, so I just rolled it out like a pie dish.
Brush the top with yolk and pierce the surface with your fork to let the steam out whilst cooking.
Cook at 200 Celsius for 20 minutes (please pre heat your oven first k for at least 15 minutes.) Serve warm.
We finished the whole dish in one sitting! That was today's dinner folks.
Have a good weekend.
