Chicken curry rice


Hohohoho !

Time really flies so fast .....

Need to post more before the year ends .....

Hopefully , Her Laziness won't  materialize this month ! lol

So , it's been cold , windy and rainy here these past few days .....

I've been to a shop yesterday to check some winter jackets but I guess most people here had the same idea ! The shop was full to bursting as if winter necessities will go out of fashion ! lol

I think I'll better wait for the 90% markdown hee hee !

As it's cold here , what better way to cook than this scrumptious one-dish meal ....

A very satisfying dish that combines curry , chicken and rice ....

Imagine all those flavor in one dish ?!


I love eating curry with rice but never thought of cooking it together .....

Good thing  that I've been lurking at marthastewart's site to check some recipe for this month's Cook like a star blog hop or else I wouldn't think of cooking it .....

So , what are you waiting for ? Go try this if you haven't done so ! For sure , you have most of the ingredients in your pantry !

Please check original recipe @ Martha Stewart

150 grams chicken breast , cut into 3 pieces

150 grams shallots , roughly chopped
1 teaspoon ginger , finely minced
1/2 tsp sugar

1/2  tsp garlic powder , 1/4 tsp coarse salt and a generous dash of white ground pepper to marinate the chicken

  8. Hi Anne,

    We always cook curry and rice separately as well. This "paella-style" of curry rice looks very flavorsome. I reckon all the curry must be very absorbed into the rice.

    PS. Here is my answer to your chocolate question... I bought my chocolate mainly from two shops. One is from an Australian online shop called Paragon, cheaper than most shops but postage cost added on to my cost. Another is from a shop called the Essential Ingredients which are very expensive but doesn't require postage. Callebaut cocoa powder, 1 kg is about AUD$28 from shop (AUD$22 online w/o postage.) Valrhona cocoa powder, 250g is about $15 (online w/o postage). Callebaut chocolate (56% cocoa), 500g is $15 (online w/o postage) and about $18 (from shop)... Hope I can remember the prices right... I guess the prices from Australia and HK are about the same... Hope that Santa will response well to our messages... LOL!

  9. We like chicken curry with rice and cook it together too, but have yet to try with thai red curry paste.

  10. Hi Anne! This reminds me of Nasi Bryani that our Indian friends cook here in Singapore/Malaysia. I could tell from the photos that the rice has absorbed the juice and moisture from the chicken and curry. What an ideal one-dish meal!
