Nyonya cuisine is a fusion of Malaysian, Chinese, and Indonesian foods offering a tasty combination of flavours that these nations have to offer. Our signature Garlic Coconut Paste provides the delicious base notes for pan-frying the chicken before adding our complex Nyonya Paste. Galangal, chilli, coriander and kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass are but few of th ingredients that are pounded together to create the paste, adding many levels of flavour to this dish. Our favourite chilli, coriander and coconut flake garnish tops this dish off with a little sweetness and heat.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Bring a pot of water to the boil and par-boil the potatoes for 5 mins. If you’re making some steamed rice too, start to cook this now according to packet instructions. Meanwhile, continue to step 2.

  • 2.

    Heat 2 tbsps of oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, then add the chicken and stir-fry for 2 mins. Stir through the Garlic & Coconut and fry for 2 more mins. Now add the Nyonya Paste, mix well and fry for 2 more mins.

  • 3.

    Drain the par-boiled potatoes and add to the pan along with the coconut milk. Simmer over a medium-low heat for 8 mins.

  • 4.

    Add the green beans and Nyonya Garnish to the pan. Stir and simmer for 4 mins.

  • 5.

    Serve in bowls (by itself or over steamed rice). Squeeze a lime wedge over each bowl of Nyonya if you have a lime.

We enjoyed this but found it a bit heavy and could do with a bit more flavour - but tasty and easy to make

Amanda - Jul 15, 2018

Mt husband loved this one but I'm not keen on lemongrass so only 4 out of 5 for me.

Amazing flavour and the kit for 2-3 has made 4 portions!

Amy - Jul 06, 2018


Michelle - Jul 04, 2018

2nd time I’ve had this and it’s delicious

christina - Jul 03, 2018

Potatoes needed longer before or in sauce but other than that it was very nice.

Terry - Jul 03, 2018


P - Jul 02, 2018

The whole family, kids included, found this absolutely delicious. We had it with Greek Yoghurt on the side because it's quite spicy, but we like that!

Chris - Jul 01, 2018

Tasty but potatoes don’t cook as quickly as recipe suggests, needs at least another 5 mins.

Jayne - Jul 01, 2018

Very 1st recipe, found it easy, and extremely delicious- plenty for two and certainly cheaper than a takeaway. I used tinned potatoes which worked well. Well definately have this one again!

Sian - Jun 27, 2018

Amazing 1st dish Will choose again The photo does not do the dish justice Bravo x

Caz - Jun 26, 2018

Delicious! Would never have thought to use new potatoes but this authentIc recipe really worked!

Avril - Jun 23, 2018

Enjoyed the flavours but found it too salty.

Anne - Jun 20, 2018

Something in it I didn’t like this time?

donnamarie - Jun 16, 2018


Samantha - Jun 15, 2018

As with many of the 2 chilli heat dishes, I always only start off adding only half the pot. The resulting dish still had a kick to it, but not too much of one and the flavour was great. I think we would have it again but would be tempted to precook the beans a bit as they were a bit too al dente for my husband.

Donna - Jun 15, 2018


Andy - Jun 12, 2018

Delicious. A nice bit of warmth too

Steve - Jun 12, 2018

Michelle - Jun 10, 2018

Fantastic flavour, super easy to cook & will be a firm favourite of mine for a relaxed Friday night dish.

Ffion - Jun 10, 2018

Gorgeous, tasty and filling!

donnamarie - Jun 10, 2018

Bloody love this one x it’s one of my all time favourites

Rebecca - Jun 10, 2018

Nice dish, not too hot. Lovely Thai flavour

Roa - Jun 09, 2018

It was really good. The only this is that the instructors are different on the card and the app which I found confusing when I was shopping for the ingredients and all I had was my phone.

Georgina - Jun 08, 2018

Our absolute favourite, it has a nice kick to it and surprisingly tastes better the next day when having leftovers for lunch :-)

David - Jun 08, 2018

Very nice

Joanna - Jun 08, 2018

Lovely, second time I’ve had it and as good as ever. Very tasty.

Paula - Jun 06, 2018

Absolutely delicious! A mixture of flavours that match perfectly.

Marta - Jun 06, 2018

Bit too spicy but overall amazing!

Steven - Jun 05, 2018

Really nice

Yukiko - Jun 03, 2018

One of my all time faves - I add pre fried courgettes and aubergine instead of green beans - works a treat!

Greg - Jun 03, 2018

Just tried this curry and was blown away used coconut cream rather than milk it was amazing.

Jordan - Jun 02, 2018

The rice alongside the potatoes is too much carb, and always think it could do with one more chicken thigh

Brett - Jun 02, 2018

Love this dish. It’s different because you wouldn’t normally put green beans in a curry type dish

Claire - May 31, 2018

Excellent I will order again. We had rice not a naan bread.

Naomi - May 31, 2018

Reminded us of our honeymoon to Malaysia

Grant - May 31, 2018

Really lovely and so packed full of flavour

Claire - May 30, 2018
