I wonder how many debates this thread will inspire that would be right at home in Goons with Chickencheese

That was some nice looking curry there, Could you possibly write down all of your directions for the recipe you use for those of us who are bad at cooking and need hand holding?

Based on the rice washing discussion I'm going to assume someone's going to have a brain meltdown every update over something.

As for the recipe I went through the video and transcribed it the best I could, because I want to toss it in my recipe folder as well.


Mico's (Thai?) Chicken Curry
Serves 3 nerds

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Vegetable oil
1tbsp chopped garlic
1.5tsp salt
0.5tsp ground black pepper
2tsp ground coriander
0.5tsp tumeric (turmeric?) powder
2tbsp ginger powder
2-3 dried chiles de arbol
2 russet potatoes
1 shallot
1 15oz can of coconut milk
1 can diced tomatoes

1) Slice the chicken breasts into chunks
2) Peel and cut up the shallot
3) Wash and cut up the potatoes
4) Pre-heat and oil up a pan
5) Throw the potatoes into the pan and stir them around a bit
6) Throw the shallots, garlic, chiles (after removing the stem), ginger, 1/4 of the tomatoes and 1/2 the can of coconut milk into a blender and blitz the lot
7) Add the chicken to the pan
8) Cook rice however the hell you want, Mico uses a 2:1 ratio with chicken stock
9) Mix the coriander and tumeric/turmeric, the salt and pepper in a glass. Add that to the pan and stir around until it coats the potatoes and chicken
10) Add the sauce to the pan, then rinse out the blender with the remaining coconut milk and throw that in too, mix it all up
11) Leave the pan to simmer on a low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally
12) Throw the rice and curry onto a plate and chow down
