made nonya curry chicken for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 27.7.2018.^^
this my 66th 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 washed & drained 2.5kg boneless chicken thighs (10 thigh pieces) & seasoned with 3 tbsp fish sauce & heng’s malacca nonya chicken curry sauce in the fridge overnight..
in the morning, i fried sliced ginger, 1 cut red onion, 2 twigs of coriander, 1 twig of curry leaves till fragrant.
then added the chicken fillet, stirred & fried thoroughly on medium high fire, while i peeled & cut 5 potatoes.
a lot of water in the chicken, so no need to water, just let the chicken cook. then added 200ml coconut milk, stirred thoroughly to mix the cconut milk, and reduced fire to medium low, and covered.
chicken looked wonderful.
i tasted the curry, it was quite perfect-lemak, “pang”, tasty.
returned to peelin potatoes while chicken cook.
removed chicken pieces, added potatoes to pot & cooked for 5mins while reducing the gravy to become thicker & more flavourful..
then added back the potatoes & curry to the chicken pieces.
placed the dish in a 45degC oven to keep watm.
when ready to leave for tabean gardens, took out the dish from oven, covered tray with aluminium foil & transport to TB for communiyty breakfast.
