Teaser – Itek Sioh (recipe in next post)

I have heard of Itek Sioh but never tried it before. Then, Delicious Asian Food shared the recipe of Ayam Sioh and it looks very easy to do. And indeed it is very easy and yet, the dish tastes really ‘complicated’. If you know what I mean? Some dishes taste like grandma’s cooking and we thought it takes a lot of work to prepare it but with some modern gadgets, prepared ingredients and a bit of shortcut, it isn’t difficult at all.


I got myself the frozen ducks drumsticks and duck breasts from the supermarket. Ducks are pretty cheap and four drumsticks only costs RM7.50 per pack and the four pieces of duck’s meat only RM4.50. If you do not know, duck’s bones are very hard and it is not easy to chop the whole duck on our own unless your cleaver is very sharp. So, if you buy duck, ask the seller to chop it up for you.


Well, I cooked with duck with the pressure cooker and all it takes are just a few minutes to have this delicous sweetish, sourish and very fragrant tender duck with gravy. This is one dish that you can make in big batches and store them in the freezer. It will taste even better.

Once again, who would have thought that this male lawyer who is a blogger who likes cooking will impart one of the traditional Peranakan recipe to the world wide web through the marvels of blogging? Check out ayam sioh and you will find his recipe there.

My adjusted recipe in the next post.

    Hmm…why u didn’t get fresh ducks from the market instead? Will probably taste nicer compared to frozen duck?!?
