Mise en place

Method

  1. Wash and dry the chicken pieces.

  4. Pour over the chicken, mix well and marinate for several hours or overnight.
  5. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade (remove as much marinade as possible) and reserve.
  6. Heat the oil in a wok to a moderate heat and stir-fry the marinade for a couple of minutes.
  7. Add the chicken pieces and stir-fry until they are golden brown (about 10 minutes).
  8. Add the coconut milk, sugar and curry leaves.
  9. Stir, salt to taste and simmer, partially covered until the chicken is cooked.
  10. Serve garnished with the chopped spring onion.

Serving suggestions

Serve with Nasi sayur.

Variations

If using boneless chicken, you can cut it into smaller chunks, but you will need to reduce the cooking time accordingly.

Try it with other poultry or game birds.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
