assam chicken thigh fillet

made assam chicken for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 13.7.2018.^^

this my 64th friday breakfast community meal dish 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.

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.

and reduced the gravy to make the gravy more intense & flavourful. ^^
