Mix the garlic powder, djahé (ground ginger) and the sambal with the soy sauce.
Add this to the fried onions.
Bring the sauce to the boil.
Spoon the chicken strips into the sauce, and bring it to the boil for a few seconds.

The ayam goreng pedas can also be combined with a vegetable dish (such as Gado Gado or Orak Arik) and along with dry cooked rice be served.
