Curry chicken, a very common dish in Malaysia. In Malaysia, every where you go, coffee house, night market, street food, restaurant, you will see curry chicken, weather it's Indian, Malay or Chinese, we hardly go without curry. As you see my curry chicken has no potatoes in it because none of my family members like it. And since potatoes are mostly starch, I prefer not to buy it as well. My lazy way of preparing curry these days is to use the drumsticks. I hate to chop chicken into smaller pieces, drumstick is cheaper than breast meat and I don't have to cut it. So, why not? A delicious curry chicken is super easy to cook with a premix.
8 chicken drumsticks
1 ChanHong instant rendang mix. (available at mytasteofasia.com)
1 packet of dried coconut powder (available at mytasteofasia.com)
In a big pot, add in oil. Turn to medium heat, when heated, stir-fry the rendang mix until fragrant, add in drumsticks. Stir to coat well and add in the coconut milk. How diluted the coconut milk is depended on you. More coconut milk used like me, you will end out with a curry chicken (we love the gravy for rice), less coconut milk used, you will have your rendang (dried chicken curry). Simmer for 2 hours.
