About this recipe:
An Indonesian classic. Lemon grass slices (in jar) are a fine substitute for fresh lemon grass. Alter the amount of chilli to your own taste. Enjoy! :) My mum would always cook this for us kids.
1 kg chicken thigh fillets
125ml lime juice
250g tinned tomatoes
3 small red chillies
2 tsp ginger
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp tumeric
250ml coconut cream
1 lemon grass stem
15 min › Cook:
40 min › Ready in:
Combine the chicken with the lime juice and leave for up to an hour.
Combine tomatoes with water and blend until smooth.
Add tomatoes, chillies, ginger, garlic, tumeric, lemon grass (remove stem before serving) and undrained chicken into a pot. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add coconut cream and simmer un-covered for 10 minutes.
Serve with rice. I like to have cucumber slices on the side to cool my mouth down a bit! :)
I made this this evening and I must say that it is really tasty. Light, aromatic, flavoursome and hardly needed any seasoning. Definitely one to be made again

This is absolutely delicious. It is simple to prepare, and can be left alone on the hob until almost ready.
I have made it several times and it always tastes exciting.
