If you think well, you cook well...

Savoury Chicken Wings with French Beans

6 chicken wings - thoroughly cleaned and dried up
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
6 or more french beans cut into 2 in lengths
2 kaffir lime leaves, finely sliced
2 red chilli finely sliced to garnish

Ingredients for the chilli paste - blended together
2 tbsp chilli boh
4 shallots
4 garlic cloves
1/2 in galangal
1 stalk lemon grass
6 black pepper
2 tbsp dried shrimp


  1. Heat the oil in a wok. Add chicken wings and fry until lightly browned.
  2. Stir in chilli paste and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Stirring constantly to stop the paste from sticking to the wok.
  3. Add water, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the chicken wings are tender. Season with brown sugar and soy sauce.
  4. Mix in french beans and kaffir lime leaves and fry until the beans are cooked. Serve garnished with sliced red chillies.

Note: I slightly modified this recipe. The original recipe is from '60 HOTWOK RECIPE' by Linda Doeser.
