Indonesian Style Chicken Curry

Indonesian name it kare ayam. Kare mean curry, ayam mean chicken. Though it looks like curry, but it did not contain any curry powder. The yellow color comes from turmeric powder, and it has very different taste with those Indian curry(which i prefer most) And by the way, what the curry powder made of????


4 chicken drumstick
1 cup thick coconut milk
5 cloves shallot
3 cloves garlic
3 candle nut
5 red chilies
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 stalk lemon grass
2 slice galangal
2 bay leaves
2 lime leaves

- Grind all the ingredients except lemon grass, galangal, bay leaves and lime leaves. Heat 1 tbsp oil, saute all the ingredients till fragrant, add chicken and coat with the spices, let it stand for 2 minutes on both side, add a cup of water and cover the pan. Let it simmer for 15 mins. Pour in coconut milk and continue cooking till gravy almost dry.
