11/2 kg/3 lb   8 pcs of chicken, skinless with bone
4 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 pc cinnamon stick
6 black pepper corns
6 cloves




In a pan heat the oil and stir fry the ground paste.

Add the strained chicken stock and the coconut water. Stir until smooth and all the lumps have gone.
Bring to a boil and let it cook until thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
Add the chicken, bring to a boil for 3 minutes. Add the lemon and kaffir lime leaves. Cover and leave on a simmer for a few minutes allowing to incorporate all the flavour. Serve with boiled rice and an onion salad.

Tips


For a nut free option substitiute sun flower seeds.

Curry Patta/leaves are a good substitute for Kaffir Lime leaves.

This recipe needs to be cooked and thickened to perfect consistency before adding the chicken. Leave the pot uncovered and allow it to rapidly boil once the curry is smooth.
It is best to add the chicken and cool overnight for the flavours to be perfect for next day.
