I have to admit that I do tend to cheat with curries and use a well known jar of curry sauce, so this was going to be an interesting and hopefully, an enjoyable experience eating this type of curry.
Nyonya Curry is the second dish I made using my box of ingredients and recipe cards sent to me from Simply Cook. I hope you will want to try this and enjoy eating it as much as I did.
In the box
- Nyonya Paste
- Garlic Coconut Paste
- Nyonya Garnish
- 250gms chicken thighs,(off the bone),chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
- 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced into 2cm cubes
- 400mls coconut milk
- 100gm green beans
- From the store cupboard
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Lime wedges to garnish (optional)
The prepared potatoes were par boiled for 5 minutes.
The olive oil was poured into a large frying pan and I fried the chicken for 2 minutes, stirred through the Garlic Coconut Paste and fried for a further 2 minutes. The Nyonya Paste was then added and stir fried for another 2 minutes.
After draining the par boiled potatoes, I added them to the frying pan along with the coconut milk and simmered for 8-10 minutes.
All the ingredients simmering away, the aromas are wonderful!
Finally, the green beans and the Nyonya Garnish were added to the frying pan, stirred and simmered for around 4 minutes.
The mixture was served in heated bowls. I did not have any lime wedges, but I am sure they would have enhanced the curry flavours.
Nyonya curry ready to be enjoyed
This dish was thoroughly enjoyed. I wish all curries tasted as delicious as this one did. I will definitely cook it again!
