Chicken and Potato Curry With Rice


I savor curry quite often at my parents' place. Hence, you can't really see I post up curry recipe here as I usually do not hands on to cook my own. Things has changed. One Sunday, I had suddenly thought of cooking a hurried meal so that I could utilize my time to do some house chores. The dish that came across my mind was the chicken and potato curry.

I made a curry without coconut milk. With just the spices, the curry smell is really incredible. Spice has its magical power! We had a satisfying meal on that afternoon. :)
I swear I will have to discover more curry recipe in future.


Chicken and Potato Curry

Ingredients:

1/2 of skinless chicken breast, deboned and cut into cubes
3 potatoes, peeled cut into cubes
1/2 onion, peeled and sliced
cooking oil
200ml water

Seasoning:

fresh chili paste for chicken curry ( I bought it from wet market at 1 dollar)
1 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tbsp of meat curry powder
1 tsp of brown sugar
light soy sauce to taste

Method:

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the potato till 80% soft. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat some oil in a wok. Stir-fry the onion. Add all the seasoning except light soy sauce. Stir fry till the oil separated from the chili paste.

3. Add in chicken cubes. Saute for 4-5 minute. Pour in the potato to mix well. Add water and close the lid for simmering.

4. When sauce is thickening, add light sauce to taste.

5. Serve hot with rice.

I love curry without the milk too because the spicy aroma hits my palate more directly :)Great!

Yep. Spices do wonders without coconut milk. I think a lot of Indian curries are without coconut milk too and their curries are as delicious.

It's so silly of me to always think curries hard extremely hard to do. I tend to forget that it is the spices that makes the big big difference. Reading this makes me want to make my own curry chicken too!
