made chicken korma for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 6.7.2018.^^
this my 63rd 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.
the dish looked & tasted delicious.
it was though a uncommon taste so i was not sure if the teban gardens residents would like it.
i had the usual 3kg frozen boneless chicken thighs from sheng shiong, drained in a colander.
the i marinated with the babas korma paste overnight in the fridge.
in the morning, added sliced ginger & curry leaves to 2 tbsp vegetable oil then added chopped garlic.
then added in the marinated chicken pieces & stirred & mixed thoroughly all on high heat.
then covered on medium heat. there is a lot of liquids in the chicken so no need to add water.
added 200ml coconut milk & mixed thoroughly. removed cover & turned to high heat.
i then removed the chicken so they would not be overcooked, and reduced the gravy to make it more intense & flavourful. ^^
then i added back the gravy.
a wonderful dish full of flavours.
the centre director R later replied “Most enjoyed the chicken, something different. It was tasty. 👍🏻👍🏻” so the not so common dish was ok afterall.
