I just came back from a short trip to Vietnam. I spent two days in Ho Chi Minh City, practically eating through every corner of it.
One of the dishes that I really enjoyed during this past trip was Vietnamese chicken curry or Ca Ri Ga, which is the local version of Indian curry.
I love curries and really enjoyed the Vietnamese version of it. Loaded with tender and perfectly cooked chicken, carrots and potatoes, Vietnamese chicken curry is lighter and flavorful, thanks to the ubiquitous fish sauce used in its cooking.
As soon as I am home, I had to develop this recipe to share with you. Making a mean pot of chicken curry is easier than you think, as long as you have all the ingredients. These days, you can get them at local supermarkets: lemongrass, bottled curry powder and fish sauce. Once you have them, this dish is a quick 30 minutes recipe to make.
Serve the Vietnamese chicken curry with steamed rice or French bread. The curry sauce is a little spicy but delightful; the rice or bread will soak up the curry, making this dish one of the most delicious comfort foods for this season. Enjoy!
