Again...another Manadonese meal...
I made it less spicy than usual, since I still had coughing and sore throat.

- 5 whole chicken leg, cut into 4 each
- 6 cloves garlic
- 6 cloves small red onion
- 5 cm of ginger
- 3 cm of turmeric
- 6 chili paddy or bird's eye chili
- 5 candle nuts
- 3 lemongrass, use only 3/4 from the bottom, chop into small pieces
- 6 lime leaves
- a bunch of basil leaves (Indonesian-daun kemangi)
- 1 tomato, cut into 8
- 1 lime, use the juice
- salt
- sugar
- oil for saute
- water

Put the chicken in a big bowl and add the lime juice, mix it and let it immerse for 30 minutes.
In a chopper/grinder, put garlic, onion, ginger, turmeric, chili, candle nuts and cut lemongrass, and grind it (Christian normally likes it a bit coarse). In a pan, saute this ground spices with a little bit oil for 2 minutes. Add salt and sugar. Add the chicken and cook, stir it occasionally. Add some water and continue to cook until the chicken tender and the water thicken. At last add the lime and basil leaves and also the tomato. Adjust the taste with salt and sugar.
