When thinking of what influences did the Philippines have from India in culinary, most of us will answer the use of Curry powder. I have learned to cook and loved the taste of curry on the food that I cook. So now, I will share with you my home-style recipe of Chicken Curry.
3/4 kilo chicken breast cut
2 cups of coconut milk
2 tablespoon of curry powder
2 medium-sized onion chopped
3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 medium-sized ginger pounded
1 small red bell pepper
2 medium-sized potato cut into bigger cubes
1 medium carrots cut into cubes
1 teaspoon of fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Here is how to cook Chicken Curry:
1. In a pan, half-cook the chicken together with the garlic, onion, pepper, fish sauce, pepper and a bit of salt. If you notice it, I didn’t add water or oil to cook the chicken because the meat of the chicken emits liquid and oil when cooked. So to be healthy, I prefer the natural water and oil from the chicken itself. Cook it for 5 minutes.
2. After 5 minutes, add the potato and carrots, then sprinkle the curry powder. Next pour the coconut milk. Let it boil for 5 to 7 minutes.
3. Then placed the red bell pepper and cook it for another 2 minutes. Caution: curry powder and ginger make chicken curry spicy so if you add chili pepper it will only heighten the spicy taste of it which will not be appreciated by some. So instead of using chili pepper, you can use bell pepper as a substitute.
4. After 2 minutes, your chicken curry is ready to be served.
Simple isn’t it? For wives out there, make cooking your hobby and you will be loved by your hubby.
