Step 1: Prepare curry paste
Place all ingredients into food processor and blend until it becomes a smooth fine paste.
Step 2: Cook the curry chicken and serve
In a heated wok or large pan, place 2 tbsp of oil. Stir-fry shallots, blue ginger and lemon grass. Next, add in star anise, cinnamon and clove. Fry till fragrant and shallots become translucent.
Add in the paste, cook till oil surfaces and the colour of the chilli paste have turn darker.
Add chicken and curry leaves. Pour in 200ml water and cook over low heat for about 15 mins until chicken is cooked.
Pour in coconut milk, season with salt and sugar. Mix well. When coconut milk is well infused into the gravy, add in the potatoes. Do avoid over-stirring as it will smash the potatoes.
Simmer the chicken for 20 – 30 mins till chicken becomes tender. Serve it with fragrant white rice or slices of toasted French bread.
