EASY MUMMY'S CURRY CHICKEN


Curry Chicken 
is a versatile one bowl dish

You can either serve with rice,
soft bread, crusty bread or flat bread.

If cannot finish the same day
you can serve as a sauce for boiled noodles, beehoon or spaghetti
and still taste yummy!

My mom does not like spicy food.
She only likes the curry chicken that she cooks
because it is less spicy
and 
with the minimum spices
and to top it all, 
easy to cook!

If you are interested
this is her version of curry chicken which I fondly call
Easy Mummy's Curry Chicken.

It is really easy!

Easy Mummy's Curry Chicken
(A) 1/2 chicken, chop into bite size
       2 potatoes, cut in wedges

(B) 5 garlic
      10 shallots
      20 dried chili, remove seeds & soak in hot water to soften

(C) add some water to make a paste
      3-4 Tbsp curry powder
      1/2 tsp turmeric powder
       
(D) 4-5 Tbsp cooking oil
      2 lemon grass, smashed
      1-2 cup water
      some curry leaves
     100g coconut milk
      salt & sugar to taste

1) blend (B) garlic, shallots & chili until fine
2) heat oil in a kuali, turn heat down to low and add (B) to fry until fragrant
3) add curry powder paste & lemon grass, fry until red oil has surfaced
4) add chicken, potato & curry leaves, and continue frying
5) add water to cook until chicken is tender
6) add coconut milk, salt & sugar to taste
7) serve

Mom's Notes to me:
1. Do not be stingy with oil, curry gets its colour from oil
2. always use LOW heat to fry chili paste until fragrant
2. must fry until the oil separates from the paste, no short cut!
