Curry Chicken Secret Recipe

To be honest, my mums cooking especially the curry chicken, really thumbs up and unbeatable. So today I am going to share out the recipe. Yes, no kidding, share out everything. No secret. Today we are going to have a big family gathering and my mum again, show off her kung fu and prepare big bowl of curry chicken and yellow ginger rice.

Lets work on the ingredient first.
1) Chicken - 3 Big fat chickens. (well, we are throwing a big party here).
2) Potato 
3) Curry paste
4) Lemon grass and cinnamon
5) Salt, Sugar, soya sauce.
6) Coconut milk (200ml) x 2
(if you cooking for only 1 chicken, please cut down the coconut milk accordingly)

How to prepare the ingredient:
1) peel, wash and cut the potato. (NB: remember to soak the potato into plain water, as if you leave the cut potato expose, the iodine will get oxidise and the potato will turn to brownish/black).
2) wash and cut the chicken and dry up the chicken. (if you bought it from the wet market, you can make a request and they will cut for you, save all the messy work).
3) wash and cut the lemon grass into smaller portions. (pls refer the photo below).

Start Cooking:
1) Fried the potato first. Why? This is important, as if you do not fried it first, after few round of reboil /reheat of the curry chicken, you will not be able to find any potato as all will become smash potato. (to know how to fried the potato refer here)

2) Removed the potato and extra oil from the pot.  Put in the chilli paste, cinnamon, lemon grass and *chicken feet. Sit and mixed all together.

3) Now put in the chickens. Add in a spoonful of sugar, a bit of salt, some soya sauce. (*just a bit of salt will do as the soya sauce will provide saltiness to the dish as well).
