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.
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 3kg frozen boneless chicken thighs from sheng shiong, drained in a colander.
then marinated with mak’s assam paste in fridge overnight. 🙂
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 the gravy more intense & flavourful. ^^
then i added back the thickened gravy.
a very tasty dish. chicken was tender & sweet & succulent, and the gravy was delicious.
