Cook With Ken – Simple Curry Chicken

Date:  Oct 5, 2013

Since very long while that I never cook Chicken Curry dish.  Today, I got to cook 3 pots for Jay Jay’s mega party.  It is a joint birthday party with his friend Riyandi and his friend’s father.  hehe

Let’s see if I still remember it…

1.  Empty wok.  Pre-heat until very hot wok.

2.  Wow.  This cooking oil comes with Omega 3.

22.  That’s it!  While simmer the curry chicken, you got lots of time.  Can even write a few blogs ya.

And your Curry Chicken is ready to serve.  The A1 Curry paste is quite salty.  So, you don’t need to put extra soya sauce or salt or anything like that.
