Chicken Curry

Initially I wanted to have a popiah party but later on when two families couldn't make it, I changed my mind and decided to make Chicken Curry instead.   My hubby and son love curry.  With plenty of potatoes, my little one will attempt to eat some too.

Due to poor planning, getting this curry put together was time consuming for I realised that I ran out of meat curry powder when I was getting the spices ready.  Off to the supermarket to buy. 

I also remembered that mom said making curry, best is to use the Holland variety that doesn’t disintegrate into the curry.  That said, it means non floury potatoes so russet potatoes (which I have plenty) are a no for making curry.

Now will you expect that a big supermarket does not have potatoes (Holland)?  So off to another supermarket … haiz….

Finally my pot of Chicken Curry and I am glad that this goes down well with everyone.

For me, it is not the chicken that I eat in the curry.  I love the potatoes in the curry and having baguette with it.  Heavenly.

What you need:

Grind together (Sambal)

6 dried chilli
6 fresh chilli
6 small onion
3 clove garlic
3 cm tumeric
1 small pc of Belachan – toasted

Potatoes (number depend on your liking)
