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!

Found green beans needed more cooking

Lorna - Jun 09, 2019

Really nice, would make again. Quite salty but we liked that. The crunch of the cashew nuts was a nice addition

Emma - Jun 09, 2019

Well this tasted nice but looked nothing like the picture. Mine was more like a watery gravy. I added cornflower as I prefer it more saucey but didn't really make a difference. Was I supposed to cut my chicken I am not sure..

Ilario - Jun 09, 2019

Very testy and easy to follow

Has the recipe changed since last year? It seemed more salty and the colour had changed from a cream colour to an orangey colour.
