Method

  1. Bruise 1 stalk Lemongrass. This will help release the aroma when cooking.
  2. With a pestle and mortar, pound 1.5 inch Ginger, 1 Green Chlli, 2 Shallots and 2 cloves Garlic. Alternatively, you can use a blender.
  3. In a pre-heated pot over medium heat, melt 2 tbsp. Coconut Oil. Once hot, add in the pounded ingredients and saute.
  4. After 3-4 minutes, add in 2 tsp. Turmeric Powder and the smashed Lemongrass and saute once again.
  5. Add in Chicken meat and mix well with the sauteed ingredients.
  6. Once the meat is coated, pour in 1/2 cup each Coconut Milk and Water.
  7. Add in 1/2 tsp. Salt and cover the pot. Let everything cook for about 20 minutes or until desired thickness is reached and chicken is cooked through.
  8. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. chopped Cilantro over the top and serve!
