Nyonya cuisine is a fusion of Malaysian, Chinese and Indonesian foods and shows the best of each of these nations' tastes and techniques. Our Nyonya-style curry uses a garlic and coconut paste for the base notes while our aromatic curry paste adds many levels of flavour with accents of lemongrass, ginger and kaffir lime.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Bring a pot of water to the boil and par-boil the potatoes for 5 mins. If you’re making some steamed rice too, start to cook this now according to packet instructions.

  • 2.

    Heat a little oil in a large pan over medium heat, then add the chicken and stir fry for 2 mins. Stir through the Garlic & Coconut paste and cook for 2 more mins. Next add the Nyonya Paste, mix well and cook for 2 more mins.

  • 3.

    Drain the par-boiled potatoes and add them to the pan along with the coconut milk and the green beans. Let it simmer over a medium-low heat for 8 mins. Add the Nyonya Garnish to the pan. Stir well and let it simmer for 2 mins.

  • 4.

    Serve the Nyonya curry in bowls (by itself with naan bread on the side, or over steamed rice). Squeeze a lime wedge over each bowl of curry (if using). Tip: Serve with plain yoghurt on the side for those who might find it spicy.

Nice - easy to over-cook, though, so may be worth pre-cooking the potatoes a bit more and cutting down the heat and time at the end.

clive - Oct 05, 2018

was not keen on this sauce nice but would be better with pork fillet than chicken thigh - bit anaemic and needs more spice

Nicola - Sep 30, 2018

Very hot but tasty, kids weren’t impressed but we enjoyed it!

Michelle - Sep 27, 2018

2nd time we’ve cooked this meal and it is definitely a firm favourite now!

Caroline - Sep 25, 2018

Loved this dish. Quite a kick but served with natural yogurt and lime an it made it smoother. Would have this again, even the kids enjoyed it and had seconds.

Linda - Sep 24, 2018

Kerry - Sep 21, 2018

Very salty not much flavour

Scott - Sep 21, 2018

Nice enough, need to make again and tweak the recipe me thinks. Tasted a bit salty and potatoes were not quite soft enough. I will pre boil potatoes and add them later next time.

Mark - Sep 20, 2018

Very flovoursome i loved it partner found it bit spicy for his pallet

Belinda - Sep 18, 2018

Great dish and so easy to make!

Marcel - Sep 18, 2018

Was lovely. But I feel like the instructions regarding the amount of potatoes should have been in grams rather quantity or state baby new potatoes as it was too much for pan and I had to switch to a casserole dish. Also it’s one of those dishes that’s nicer the next day. FYI to make it less calorific I swapped the coconut milk to a light version.

Eleanor - Sep 17, 2018

Found it too salty but would make it again cooking the potatoes in it to absorb the salt
