Curry Chicken & Potatoes – 43rd Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 6Oct2017

curry chicken & potatoes

made curry chicken & potatoes for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 6.10.2017. ^^

this my 43rd friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

curry chicken & potatoes

i used a 2kg packet of chicken thighs with a centre bone. this not as good as the boneless leg which is the entire thigh & leg w/o bone. so i had to cut the meat & leave the centre bone.

curry chicken

i fried 1 sliced onions, 3cm sliced ginger & 2 stalks of curry leaves.

then i added mak’s chicken curry sacket, and added the cut chicken pieces, fried & coated with the curry.

i did not have stock, so just added 1 cup water, covered & simmered for 5mins. then i removed the chicken pieces & left the 12 bone pieces & boiled for 20mins.

curry chicken & potatoes

the i added the cut potatoes (from 6 medium potatoes), added 200ml coconut milk, and cooked for 5mins,

potatoes are just cooked  when they break against the side of the wok when pressed. that way they are not overcooked.

the i added back the chicken pieces.

the dish basically ready, and i plated it in the aluminium tray for transport to teban gardens.

i tasted both the chicken & the potatoes, and curry.

they were delicious! chicken was tender not overcooked, potatoes were done just right, and the simple ready made mak’s chicken curry gravy simply marvellous, great curry flavours & lemak from the coconut milk.

mak’s recipe calls for 1kg of chicken for each sachet.

i had 2kg chicken pieces, did not want to use 2 sachets. anyway i used less water, and kept the curry gravy thick & intense. of course, this was for 130 residents at teban gardens. for home cooking, i may use 1kg or just 1/2kg chicken pieces.

then the curry would be even more delicious & intense.
