How to make it

  • Marinate chicken with turmeric, chili and salt for at least 1 hour in the fridge. During that hour you can prepare the rest :-)
  • Take a wok and heat frying oil. Add in the "taste makers" and sauté on a medium fire until the onions turn golden brown.
  • Add in the ground paste and sauté still over medium fire under continuous stirring until the flavors emerge.
  • Add in the marinated chicken and add water as needed to cook the chicken.
  • Cook chicken until tender (20 minutes or more, depending one the size of your chicken cuttings).
  • Add yogurt, tomatoes and salt to taste.
  • Bring to a boil and take of the heat immediately.
  • Serve with the best basmati rice you can find or your favorite bread and a simple cucumber raita.
  • Please don't forget your part of the barter

    An excellent dish, very tasty. Couldn't quite justify a "perfect score" but I'll definitely be taking some tips from this to improve my own curries.

    If you have some time, do try it out :-)


    Other names: Buah Keras (Malaysian Language), Candleberry, Indian walnut, Kemiri, Varnish nut and Kukui nut. It's a cream-colored nut, kind of round adding texture to your dish. Substitute with macadamia nuts or raw cashew nuts.

    This sounds great I could substitute macadamia nuts which are similar in texture and flavor as the candle nut. Thank you for posting and I am glad to be of support to your cause anything to beat cancer is well worth my vote.
