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!

My first dish, thought was a little runny however, the flavours were great, served with rice & the optional cashew nuts which gave a nice contrast crunch to the dish.

Felt like it needed thickening so used cornflour. Also added mushrooms. Was rather spicy which was to be expected so can always add cream to lessen the heat! Very tasty non the less!
