NEW SIGNATURE DISH by UK MasterChef Champion Ping Coombes' at URBAN KITCHEN, HILTON KOTA KINABALU

A home cook who rose to stardom in the world of cooking after winning the coveted MasterChef trophy back in 2014, Ping Coombes, with her family in tow, were in Sabah for a week earlier this month. Coombes was hosted by Hilton Kota Kinabalu during her stay in the Land Below The Wind. 


On a mission to spread her love for Malaysian food in the UK, Masterchef has been an intergal platform that has allowed her to showcase an array of Malaysian flavours to a mass audience. More than just a talented chef, Coombes is the owner of Ping Pan-Asian, a new contemporary Pan-Asian restaurant and delicatessen, as well as an author of a best-selling cookbook, aptly named MALAYSIA.

During the trip, the accomplished chef met up with Hilton Kota Kinabalu's Executive Chef Shanmuganatha and shared the recipe for one of her signature dishes, Kapitan Chicken Curry. A well loved favorite in South East Asia, the aromatic dish utilises a blend of spices often used in Malay cooking and is frequently enjoyed with piping hot white rice or Roti Jala. 

Coombes' recipe features a delightful spice paste made from a host of local ingredients such as ginger, galangal, lemongrass, dried chilli, shallots and more. The foundation of the punchy dish, the fragrant paste is balanced with thick coconut milk for a creaminess and tamarind concentrate for a hint of tanginess. 


The celebrity-inspired signature dish is now a permanent fixture in Urban Kitchen's à la carte menu, the first for all-day dining restaurant with global culinary selections with local specialties and western favourites. The delicious Kapitan Chicken Curry is a welcomed additions at RM48 nett.

Resepi Kari Ketam Simple

Assalamualaikum. Lama tidak kongsi resepi walaupun kmia tidak lah berapa campen mo masak. Hehe

Kali ni kmia kongsi resepi simple tapi sedap dan sebenarnya pertama kali kmia masak sendiri 😜 selalu tunggu mak yang masakkan saja. 
Ni kira resepi campak-campak dan untuk mereka yang amatur dalam bidang masak-masak ja. Walaupun bahan-bahan simple tapi tetap mendapat pujian dari hubby dan anak-anak 🤭

Kari Ketam versi miakassimdotcom .. gitew

Bahan-Bahan
Ketam saiz sederhana (5 ekor)
1 kotak santan (yang kecil tu je)
Bawang Merah dihiris
Bawang Putih dihiris
Halia dihiris
Serbuk Kari Ikan (kmia guna jenama Babas)
Sedikit cili giling (bagi dia pedas-pedas sikit)
Asam jawa (kmia guna pes asam jawa Adabi)
Daun Kari (tapi hari tu kmia masak tak ada simpan sebab tak sempat beli 😅)
Tomato
Bendi
Garam dan Gula (secukup rasa)
Minyak untuk menumis

Cara Masak
First2 memanglah ko kena siang ketam tu dulu. Dan pengakuan jujur 😂 ni pertama kali kmia siang ketam ..  hahaha sadisnya. Sebab first time maka gigihlah cari cara siang ketam di Youtube 🤭.
Panaskan minyak, tumis bawang merah, bawang putih, halia dan daun kari hingga naik bau. Kemudian masukkan serbuk kari yang sudah dibancuh dengan sedikit air dan juga masukkan cili giling. Tumis hingga pecah minyak. Lepas tu masukkan ketam, pes asam jawa, sedikit air dan santan. Kacau sekejap, tutup dan tunggu sampai mendidih. Agak-agak ketam tu dah nak masak, masukkan tomato, bendi, garam dan gula. Kalau santan agak pekat korang tambah air ikut citarasa korang. Dan siap! Simple ja. 

Ni hidangan untuk 4 orang tau. Kalau ramai kira ko kena doublekanlah semua bahan-bahan tadi. Selamat mencuba!
