Paprik Ayam is a stir fry dish usually made with chicken and vegetables like carrots, mushroom, capsicum, beans and young corn served on a spicy sauce flavoured with chillies.
The first time I got introduced with this dish I thought it was Chicken spiced up with paprika because of the name but later on I found out that it means Fried in Chillies. Deriving from the Thai Words “Pad Prik” which means fry and chilli respectively this chicken and vegetable stir fry has a lot of good heat on it. Paprik Ayam is a stir fry dish usually made with chicken and vegetables like carrots, mushroom, capsicum, beans and young corn served on a spicy sauce flavoured with chillies. Think of it as your usual stir fry but with red sauce because of the chillies used on the dish.
I quite liked this dish and it’s a usual fare in most Chinese and Malay eateries. These eateries are the ones where you fill up your plate with anything you like on the long serving table with tons of options and pay at the end with an amount usually determined by the cashier based on the amount of stuff you put in that plate. Usually these are affordable if I can remember I used to pay less than RM10.00 with a full plate with at least 4 different viands and rice. Paprik Ayam is one of the usual ones I pick together with some tofu dish, vegetable dish and another one which is fried.
I almost forgot about this dish but recently I was craving for something spicy and immediately thought of this that is why today we are making one.
