Chicken Curry


This is another favourite curry dish of the family. We love this chicken curry for it could be eaten with plain rice, yellow glutinous rice or eat it with plain bread .

I took the opportunity of the long weekend to cook this delicious, hot and spicy chicken curry to the delight of the Piggies. You are right, I do pamper them and they are so blessed…..lotz of good food for them to enjoy during this short break :)) They love my food and I love their company! :)

This curry is so flavorful coz I added in some kaffir leaves to enhance further the flavor of the curry.


I used baby potatoes for this curry...yumm yummy

the kaffir leaves truly enhanced the flavor of the curry
