About this recipe: This flavourful chicken curry has fresh toasted coconut, lemongrass, ginger, star anise, cardamom, turmeric, mint and lots more herbs and spices. The sauce is thickened with coconut milk and spiced with dried chilli peppers.
This recipe is wonderful but the proportions for the shopping list are completely off. I don't know why the shopping list says 6 limes when the recipe calls for 1 or 230 cardamom pods when the recipe only calls for 2 tabelspoons.... now I have to figure out what to do with all of these leftover cardamom pods and limes... - 10 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this about a month and a half ago and it turned out really good. I did have to make some adjustments but overall the recipes turned out yummy. It does take a long time to prep so, if you are making this dish prep everything first which makes the cooking process easier. - 25 Aug 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe has been a bigger adventure than I anticipated. As I type my hands are covered in yellow as if a highlighter exploded all over them from cutting up tumeric root. I had never done that before. Nor had I toasted anise or cinnamon or even seen cardamom pods. Which is why I love this recipe. One thing that confused me was the toasted coconut. I realized mine was sweetened, so I went back to the store where my only other option was a whole coconut. My boyfriend had to hatchet it open for me, and I'm sure there's a better way to shred and toast it than what I did. It looked a bit like an episode of Lucy. I had a tough time getting the curry paste to become a paste. My blender's motor was struggling, so I ended up adding almost a cup of water. Plus is ended up a little gritty, so make sure to blend better than I did. But overall this was a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. I delivered some to friends and they raved about it. I'm so glad I tried it! Thanks Azalina! - 01 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
