With so many styles of curry in the hawker markets in Bali, Indonesia it was hard to select just one to try, so we’ve taken inspiration from a variety of them. You can use whole drumsticks and thighs in this, as is done authentically. It’s an aromatic curry with coconut, coriander and kaffir lime leaves, the prized signature aromatic ingredient in Indonesian dishes!

Too spicy but super tasty

Christopher - Feb 06, 2019

Delicious! I only used 3/4 of the spicey pot but it was still a bit too hot for my Mrs. Will probably use a bit less next time

Penelope - Feb 06, 2019

Super yummy every time!! Quick, easy and really delicious. Nice bit of heat. I add a bit of palm sugar to just bring out the flavours. Good family favourite.

Jennie Jill - Feb 04, 2019

Really really lovely, this is a definite favourite. Definitely add the cashew nuts, adds some texture and rounds it off perfectly.

Tasty and hearty.

Laura - Feb 02, 2019

Was a bit worried when I read the other comments saying it was really spicy - as I’m not very good with a lot of spice. But don’t let that put you off. It was super tasty and spice was just right.

Family favourite

Marion - Jan 23, 2019

Subtle spice, easy to cook ,one of our favourites

Samantha - Jan 22, 2019

Tasted nice but it definitely doesn’t take just 20 minutes to cook. I was waiting a good 30 minutes alone for the sauce to thicken. No complaints on the meal itself but the cooking time isn’t accurate

Nadia - Jan 21, 2019

Very spicy and tasty! Added spinach which was a winner - if you don't like spice don't add the whole final pot!

Julie - Jan 20, 2019

Didn’t like the appearance
