Today I will be sharing my mum’s chicken curry recipe. As you will soon find out, most of the recipes are similar, only difference is what spice mixture you add 🙂
Chicken (depending on how many people you are serving. I normally cook with a quarter chicken – thigh, drumstick and chicken wing. I leave the breast for other dishes as my family is quite fussy in terms of chicken)
1 tablespoon of oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 large onion
1 inch ginger
2 star anise
Several coriander seeds
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons of coconut milk
2 tablespoons of curry powder – I use Babas curry powder cause I like the taste
Salt to taste
Slice the garlic, ginger and onion. You can cut this up however you want to. Does not have to be perfect
Heat the oil in a pot then fry the garlic, ginger and onion until fragrant
Add the coriander, star anise, cinnamon and fry together
Mix the curry powder with water and make it into a paste. Make sure it is not too runny.
Add the curry powder paste into the pot and fry until fragrant and the paste turns more brown
Add the chicken into the pot, and mix them well. Add boiling water to the mixture, and leave to boil. Let it boil for several minutes. Add salt to taste
Once the chicken is almost cooked, add the coconut milk and let to boil.
Cook the curry until chicken is cooked.
As you can see, the recipe is pretty simple. You can add more or less onion/garlic/spices depending on how much chicken you are cooking. You can eat the curry with rice or “roti canai”. Yummy!!!
