I would like to add something from what I observed how my MIL cooks her curry.

1. She uses fresh coconut and she will have 1st squeeze w/o water (concentrated) and 2nd squeeze w/water (diluted)

2. so instead of using water, she will add the diluted coconut after she has fried the chicken & potatoes with chilli.

3. the concentrated coconut will be added after the curry chicken is cooked. Reduce fire then add in the concentrated coconut, else the coconut will form 'curdle spots'.

Sherlane,
Since this is the first time cooking curry, your bitter curry may have contributed by the following.

1. You have overfried the ingredients (burnt).

2. You did not stir you curry well while cooking, the bottom might have burnt. You need to stir occasionally while waiting patiently for the curry to cook.

3. You have not measured the ingredient well. Too much candle nuts will result bitter curry.

The recipe given is well-proportioned. Maybe try to cook again, sometimes there are failures for the first trial. Very Happy

Thank you Cindi.
I won't be able to explain so clear like you did. Very Happy



sherlane
I have some pictuers step by step, hope you get the idea.
:roll: hope it won't take to much of space here.

1. ingredients


2. fry potato to lightly golden brown


3. fry chicken few minutes, added chili paste


4. fry chili paste for 2 minutes (you will see the chili paste change color)


5. add water and potatoes, simmer till chicken cook and potatoes soft


6. Season them and add coconut milk. When it start to boil. Off the fire.


note: everything will cook at step 5, you can check if chicken is tender as you like.

Hi Jewels, i'm keen to give the curry a go this weekend. Can u advise me how much of the above blended ingredient to use if i'm to use a 1kg or 1.5kg chicken to cook the curry?

How long can the balance uncook blended paste be stored? Am thinking of blending more to store for future curry cooking.

Thanks.

Hi novice, Embarassed Sorry I really have no idea how much to use the chilli paste.

:!: Usually by agaration, most of the time I use 3 chicken thigh and 2-3 spoon of chilli paste.



As for the chilli paste, I divided in a plastic bag and put in the plastic / glass container in the freezer and take it out to room temperature before use.
