A delicately flavoured Indonesian curry. Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

• 3 lbs chicken
• 4 brazil nuts, ground
• 1/2 tsp chilli powder
• 2 tsp coriander ground
• 1 tsp galangal (laos powder)
• 1 garlic clove, crushed
• 1/2 tsp turmeric, ground

Preparation:

Joint chicken and cut across bone into serving pieces.

Mix nuts, chilli, coriander, galangal, garlic and turmeric to a paste with a little oil and rub over the chicken. Leave for a few hours.

Heat remaining oil in wok or pan and fry onions until golden. Add chicken pieces and fry until golden.

Gradually add coconut milk, stirring while bringing to the boil to prevent curdling. Add lemon grass and cassia and simmer uncovered for about 30 minutesor until the sauce is thick.

Cassia is similar to Cinnamon if I'm not mistaken.

I may make it this week. I had a fairly bad experience with pork loin Saturday and now have 3 pounds of dry lion I need to eat first. If I can make, I will tell you what I think.

Any ideas on 3 pounds of over cooked pork loin? I am thinking somekind of pork curry and chick pea soup as a side the the Java Chicken.

Made the recipe and it was really good! A couple things I had to do. I could not find my Tumeric so I used Anchiote and I had to replace the Brazil nuts with Pecans. Also instead of making Sambal I used a mango hot sauce I made a while back and served it over thinly sliced cabbage. Serving Asian food on cabbage is something I would normally do with a curry dish, which this reminded of.

If you make this recipe I would suggest having a snack first as the smell will fill your kitchen and you will become really hungry. It was awsome

Also I cooked this in my iron skillet and should of used a wok. The iron made the sauce a bit dark. Did not really effect the flavor just the color. Also I think next time I make this I may use chunks of boneless chicken. The chicken as I used it was a bit big in the pan and was hard to keep stirred.



I had fruit that needed to be eaten and was good with the sweet hot of the Java Chicken

Thanks for the recipe.
