Dry Chicken Curry Recipe

Dry Chicken Curry Recipe

Ingredients :

1.5 kg chicken, cut into bite size pieces

2 medium onions, peeled and chopped roughly

3 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger

1 stalk lemon grass

3 tablespoons peanut oil

Salt to taste

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves, chopped


Method :

Use a food processor to blend the onions, garlic, ginger and sliced lemon grass until it becomes a smooth paste. If necessary, add a little oil to assist blending. Heat a wok with the cooking oil. Whenhot, stir in the blended paste, turmeric, salt and chili powder. Lower heat to medium and fry, stirring well with a wooden stapula. Add a little water if mixture starts to stick to the base of the wok. Simmer on low heat until the ingredient loses all the moisture content and turned red-brown color. Do not let it burn.

Add the chicken pieces, ensuring that they are well coated with the mixture. Cover with a lid and simmer for about 40 minutes or until the chicken is tender. At this stage, water is not necessary to be added as the chicken will produce enough liquid for this curry.

Remember to keep stirring to prevent the curry from sticking to the wok at this stage. Add the cardamom and cilantro leaves, stir and replace the lid again for a few seconds to keep the aroma. Serve hot with steamed boiled rice.
