How to make Chicken Curry Kapitan

  1. Combine chicken with salt, 1 tbsp of oil and curry powder in large bowl. Mix well, cover and refrigerate 15 minutes or longer.
  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.
  6. Meanwhile, Cut in half 2 of the 3 eggs and coarsely grate the third egg.
  7. Add the halved eggs in to the curry and cook another 15 minutes until chicken turns tender and the gravy has thickened. Fold in chopped fresh coriander.
  8. Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with the grated egg.
