curry chicken with potatoes

today is my 2nd40pax 3 dishes lunch for HCA hospice care patients on 24.9.2019 –

1 curry chicken
2 belly pork – my own special sauce
3 cabbage

my RI bro LCM came at 1040am helped me to ferry the food containers to HCA in my car..


this my second time doing forthrightly 40pax lunch for HCA..

feedback from previous lunch HCA asked to cook a bit more..

this was some difficulty because of wok size and transport..

this time I cooked about 3.6kg boneless chicken thighs, increase from 3kg last time, and 2kg belly pork from 1.6 kg..and 1.4 kg cabbage..

fried cabbage

current chicken is simple to do.

just marinate 3.6kg cut boneless chicken thighs with 2 packet heng’s nonya curry paste overnight, fried with curry leaves, sliced ginger, minced garlic this morning, and added 400ml (2packets) coconut milk.

only logistic problem was the quantity took up the entire wok volume, and a bit tough for me to manage the quantity and cook with 6 cut potatoes to make sure curry, chicken, potatoes were done just right..

so i had to separate into 2 portions, wok and a deep pot. maybe better to cook 2 portions separately next time.

anyway the results was great, and feedback was they loved the curry chicken.

chilled cooked belly pork

i boiled 2kg belly pork in bakuteh sacket 1hr 15mins, perfect tender texture, cooled down and put in chiller overnight.

this first few rounds trial and error, managing the quantity and to make sure dishes turned out nicely.

dishes were all good, i am quite certain, and feedback consistently good.

just need to manage the cooking quantity and logistics.

a very satisfying day for me. 🙂
