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