Kari Ayam

I love chicken. No matter how it is cooked, I will savour with delight. Curry however does not really agree to my tongue but when chicken is in the picture, I give in. This is my Kari Ayam recipe, exactly how my mother prepares. Hope you will enjoy this as much as I do.

These are the ingredients for sauteeing . 3-4 cloves of shallots (sliced), 2-3 cloves of garlic(sliced), an inch of ginger (sliced), 3 lightly pounded lemon grass, half - 1 cinnamon stick, 1-2 star anise & 2-3 cardamons.

Sautee all the ingredients above.

While waiting for the sauteed ingredients to turn golden, let's get the curry paste ready. A packet of chicken curry powder ( I prefer Adabi), water, chilly paste & curry leaves.

Stir to get this paste

Add in the curry paste together with the sauteed ingredients once it turns almost golden

Stir well for 2-3 minutes until the paste is cooked

Join in the chicken (3/4 of a whole chicken)

Stir the chicken together with the paste for 1-2 minutes

Pour in water as enough to almost cover the chicken

Combine cut potatoes

Let simmer until the potatoes tender

Add in 1-2 tablespoon of coconut milk. Stir well & put in salt to taste.
