This is a typical Malay dish which can be found at Malay food stalls in hawker centers around Singapore. In Malay terms, Ayam is chicken, Masak means cooked and Merah means red colour. So literally translation is Chicken Cooked Red. Sounds funny? In English, verb should be in front and noun behind, so it becomes Cooked Red Chicken :-) It is a spicy dish. But you can adjust the level of spiciness to suit your taste bud. The chilli I used to cook this dish did not yield a hot and spicy taste but a little mild, for my taste. This is a good dish to go with a plate if steaming white rice and some greens.
