Dang - it's good! Why eat out? When you can whip up a healthy dinner and celebrate Mother's day in the comforts of your own home? A popular confinement food, we present to you a delicious Dang Gui Chicken with Black Fungus recipe from mummy Shirley Tay. It's fragrant, tasty, healthy! Like Ginseng, Dang Gui is a medicinal herb used for centuries to treat various ailments. Although the Chinese herb is a magic tonic for both genders, dang gui is especially popular among women as a confinement food and it's known to help regulate menstruation!
Dang Gui is popularly used to make Chinese tonics, but innovative Shirley has tried it on this amazing recipe that makes the chicken fragrant and tender, and tastes wonderfully appetizing with the other addition of Black Fungus (木耳), Wolfberries (枸杞子) and Red Dates (紅棗).
Also known as Tang Kwei or Chinese Angelica Root (当归), the herb is strong in fragrance, and sweet with a tinge of bitterness. Other health benefits include treatment for cardiovascular issues, constipation, insomnia, inflammation, and women's reproductive issues. It's known that adding alcohol to the dish also helps to promote blood circulation.
