Left-over Files of 2008 Series, "Me Style" Javanese Chicken Curry (Kari Ayam Jawa ala Saya)

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


When Deetha asked me what kind of curry I was making, I really did not have an exact answer to it. Pondering for a moment..I believed it is called Javanese chicken curry (as what she called it too), since it contains carrot and potato. However, it is more of my own version to add fried tofu in it. Therefore, I just called it "Me Style"....

- 8 pcs of chicken drumstick
- 4 potato, peel of the skin and cut into big chunks
- bunch of mini carrot
- 4blocks of medium hard tofu, deep fry and cut into triangle shapes
- 6cloves of garlic
- 3cloves of small red onion
- 5 candle nuts
- 4cm of ginger
- 6 chili paddy or bird's eye chili
- 1tsp of ground coriander
- 1tsp of ground turmeric
- 1tsp of ground cumin
- 1/2 can of coconut milk
- 4cm of galangal, crack it with pestle
- 1stalk of lemon grass, cut into 5cm in length
- 4 lime leaves
- salt
- sugar

- oil for saute

- water



In a blender, crush garlic, onion, candle nuts, ginger and chili until smooth. Then saute it with a little bit of oil until fragrant. Add coriander, turmeric, cumin, galangal, lemon grass and lime leaves and continue to saute for another 2minutes. Add the drumstick and cook and stir for 5minutes. Add water and coconut milk, stir and cook until boiling. Adjust the taste with salt and sugar. Continue to cook until chicken tender. Add carrot and potato and cook for 5-8minutes.

To serve, place it in a bowl and add some condiments, such as black bean hot chili oil and fried onion.
