  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 oz curry powder for meat
  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken, chopped into pieces
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 big tomato, cut into wedges, optional
  • 2 small potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, (optional)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk or 3/4 cup milk
  • salt to taste


  1. Add the oil to a big pot and heat it up until hot. Add the onions and stir-fry until aromatic before adding the curry powder. Do a few quick stirs until you smell the aroma, then add the chicken, stir to combine well, for about 1 minute. Add the water into the pot and bring it to boil. Lower the heat and add the tomatoes, potatoes and eggs. Cover the pot and let simmer for about 30-45 minutes, or until chicken becomes tender. Add the coconut milk and salt to taste and simmer for another 5 minutes or so. Dish out and serve immediately with steamed rice.
