Chicken Curry (咖喱鸡)

大部分的马来西亚人都爱辛辣的食物!当然我也不例外。
咖喱鸡 ~ 就是其中一道大家都熟悉的辛辣料理。
不同的种族,对咖喱鸡有不同要求和煮法。
我不喜欢太多香料的咖喱。所以,今天我采用Sonia家的华人版食谱。
果然,这类型的咖喱比较适合我,有妈妈的味道, 很好吃!谢谢Sonia。

Most of Malaysians love hot and spicy foods. One of the popular spicy delicacy is Chicken Curry.  There are many varieties of chicken curry such as Indian, Nyonya, Malay and Chinese available in Malaysia. People of difference races will have different demand and method on curry. I don't like too many spices in my curry. Therefore, I choose this Chinese style recipe from SoniaI made the right choice, this is my favourite kind of curry, taste like my mum's version. Simply delicious!!!Thanks Sonia.
最近流行复古的铁碗碟。所以,我也跟风玩了起来!
Getting back to basic, I using these old fashioned bowl and plate for this old fashioned dish.
这是比较浓稠的咖喱鸡。如果你喜欢多些咖喱汁,可以增加水和椰浆的分量。
This is a thicker (dry) version chicken curry. 
If you like more gravy, please add more water and coconut milk.
I only cooked for a small portion- 2 chicken wings and 2 drumstick.

    1. I personally don't like very pungent and distinctive flavour indian curry.
      Feel more comfortable with chinese,nyonya or malay style.

  10. 我没有煮过咖哩鸡叻,如果不是太辣的话我相信我还是可以接受的。

    1. Tracy, 这个咖哩对我们家来说,刚刚好不会太辣。如果怕辣,就减少辣椒的分量。
      有时也需要看辣椒本身辣不辣,再做调配。

  22. Hi Esther,

    Sorry for my late visit as I was away for the past weeks... Now trying to catch up as much as I could :p

    Agreed that there is lots of different versions of chicken curry and all can be very different in term of texture and taste. Like you, I also prefer the thicker version :D
