Do you love curry chicken, too?
Curry Chicken is undoubtedly one of the all-time favourites among Singaporeans. We love curry so much that we can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even late-night supper!
To celebrate this special occasion, we would like to share this Curry Chicken with Potatoes recipe provided by home cook, Lucinda Lau.
Truly nostalgia in a bowl – this dish brings back the fondest memories Lucinda grew up with. Her mum used to prepare curry chicken for her. To date, it became one of her signature dishes!
Follow home cook Lucinda’s steps to prepare this taste of home!
Here are the ingredients you need: whole chicken, medium-size potatoes, curry powder, coconut milk, rice, curry leaves, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, shallots, salt and soya sauce.
Here are a few tips that will come in handy during ingredients preparation!
- Submerge peeled potato into a bowl of water to prevent it from turning brown
- Submerge shallot into a bowl of water to prevent tearing when removing the skin
- Marinate the chicken with two teaspoons of salt to enhance the flavour
Firstly, parboil the potatoes.
In a pot, boil peeled potatoes for five minutes. If your pot is too small, transfer potatoes into a bigger pot that you are going to cook the curry in.
Secondly, prepare the curry paste.
In a blender, combine ginger, garlic, shallots and water. Blend into a paste.
Thirdly, cook the curry paste.
In a wok, fry curry leaves and lemongrass till the water dries up.
Add in oil, curry paste and blended curry paste. Stir-fry till the oil surfaces on top.
Fourthly, cook the chicken.
Stir-fry chicken and curry paste till the meat is 3/4 cooked.
Transfer the chicken into the pot with potatoes. Add in water, ensure that the water covers the ingredients in the pot. Cook for ten minutes and stir the curry once every three minutes to prevent the bottom from getting burnt.
Once the chicken is fully cooked, add in coconut milk. You may also adjust the taste by adding salt and soy sauce. Allow the mixture to boil for another five minutes till the curry thickens.
Lastly, serve with rice or French loaf! Whichever you prefer!
