  2. Make the spice paste: Blend all the spice ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Add a couple of tablespoons of water if necessary. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. For the curry: Warm 2 tbsp oil in a deep non stick skillet over a medium heat. Add onions, cook until lightly brown (I took about 5-7 minutes).
  4. Add in the marinated chicken, Cook until brown (It took me 5 minutes). Add 1/2 cup of the prepared spice paste, fry another 2 minutes.
  5. Add coconut milk and water, salt and lime leaves. Mix well, cover and let it come to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes.
