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!
