Balinese Chicken4.4/5 (BASED ON 2588 reviews)
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!

Didn’t like the texture of the garnish but the flavour was excellent
Adriano - Dec 11, 2018
Really enjoyed this, a little spicier than expected, but easily within my own personal spice level. Will definitely order this again.

Jason - Dec 11, 2018
Absolutely delicious! I made this in my slow cooker, used skinless thighs with the bone in. The meat was so tender and full of flavours as it marinated whilst slow cooking. Definitely will order this one again. Yummy.

This was a meal we had from simply cooks choice - I forgot to change the order! It was spicy and I had to add natural yogurt for my husband as he found it a bit much.. but flavours were lovely and would order again and add the yogurt again

2nd time making this. Made for a friend and she loves it too and she said “better than a Thai restaurant”

Sauce is very thin and watery but typical of Balinese food. The spice level was not as hot as I’d expected from the other comments, enjoyable in my opinion!
Sarah - Nov 16, 2018
Meh not as multilayered as Thai curries wasn’t so much a fan
Janette - Nov 15, 2018
Really really tasty dish. One of the best meals we have eaten in a long time. Highly recommend if you like a spicey smooth dish.
Phil - Nov 15, 2018
Karen - Nov 14, 2018
OMG this is to die for. The right amount of heat (for me anyway) and a delicious coconut sauce. Really quick and easy. I used broccoli instead of green beans and would probably cook it first prior to adding to pan but this is a definite YES!!
Samantha - Nov 13, 2018
This looks unappetising on the pic but think it may be my fave so far. Really tasty and spicy.
Caroline - Nov 13, 2018
Used light coconut milk for a less creamy taste. Lovely and spicy.
Julie - Nov 13, 2018

Similar to a Thai green curry and with a nice level of spice
Tunmi - Nov 11, 2018

This curry was so full of flavour and spice, I loved it!! I swapped the green beans for mange tout, and also added spinach and it worked perfectly!
Suzanne - Nov 06, 2018
Karen - Nov 06, 2018
Hot, hot, hot! Changed the ingredients. Quinn chicken pieces, sweet potato, spinach, peas, sweet corn and cherry tomatoes. Was nice vegetarian option.
Samantha - Nov 06, 2018

One of my favourites. So tasty!
Paul - Nov 06, 2018
I quite enjoyed this one but the wife didn’t, so a bit devisive. I guess it is similar to a Thai curry but we both prefer thai. Won’t be ordering this one again
