Curry Chicken Malaysia Style

We love curry chicken tremendously .Believe or not we can eat curry chicken every week!! This time I mixed the curry chicken with the extra spices that my mom gave me to bring home .Beside extra spices,I also mixed with kaffir lime leaves that I brought all the way from Malaysia.There is no secret everyone have their own family recipe for curry chicken.I guess it's up to individual taste bud and preference how to take different style or taste of the curry..For me, I like mine extra spicy and with lots of gravy!!

10 pieces chicken thigh,removed skin and chop into 1/2
5 large potato,peeled and cut into 4 pieces
1 can coconut milk,400gm
500 ml milk

2 sticks cinnamon
3-4 star anise

2 tbsp chicken bouillon powder

1:Heat large stock pot or dutch pot with some oil and sambal spices and curry powder at medium high heat  

2:Add cinnamon stick, cardamon,star anise,curry leaves and kaffir leaves.Stir for 2 minutes before add in chicken and coconut milk.Simmer for 15 minutes with lid ON.

Hi, I tried this curry chicken the other day. The first time it was too spicy (for my foreign friends) and the combination of the star anise, cinnamon and star anise was a bit too much for me. The second time I reduced the curry powder - used only 1 cinnamon, 1 star anise and just a bit of cardamom. It tasted much better!!

I have to say this is quite a nice curry chicken recipe, but it didn't quite hit my sweet spot completely of how curry chicken should taste. But then again we Malaysians are very picky with taste and versions.... I'll keep looking for a version that fits my taste :)
