made curry chicken & potatoes for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 9.3.2018.^^
this my 55th friday breakfast community meal dish at teban gardens community service centre.
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.
i used about 2.5kg boneless chicken thigh from sheng shiong, defrost the evening before, cut, & drained in sieve in fridge overnight.
this morning i got up at the usual 7am, seasoned chicken in fish sauce (2tbsp) and white pepper, fried curry leaves (from one stalk) in heng’s nonya curry paste.
then fried chicken in curry for about 8mins. no need to add water as there is a lot of liquids in the chicken, then added 200ml coconut milk. then i removed the chicken.
cut 7-8 potatoes & cooked in the curry, about 8mins…
potatoes are just cooked (not overcooked) when it breaks when pressed against the wok or a chopstick pokes through with small resistance.
then i added back the chicken.
mixed together a bit, then off fire & transferred to aluminium carrier.
carrier was a bit full, so i dished out some curry chicken & potatoes, and kept for later.
a lovely dish! curry was spicy & very flavourful, and chicken was very tender & tasty, though it was frozen chicken. & potatoes were done just right, not mushy & very tasty.
