Lemongrass, various kinds of potatoes and coconut milk are what make Vietnamese Chicken Curry different from other kinds. Enjoy!

  • Combine chicken with salt, sugar, chicken stock and curry powder. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Peel potato, sweet potato and taro, and cut into pieces (1x2in). Soak in slightly salted water to avoid blackening. Then drain and remove excess water with kitchen towel.
  • Deep-fry the potato and taro cubes on high heat to get the outside golden-brown. This is to keep them stay in their shape rather than break and become mushy in the curry later.
  • In a large pan/wok, add 1 tbsp cooking oil and saute the minced garlic, shallot and ginger for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the marinated chicken and stir well. Cook on high heat to sear the chicken chunks on all sides.
  • Then transfer to a large pot. To the pot also add the lemongrass, coconut milk and water. Bring to a boil and skim off the foam. Season to your taste with salt and chicken stock. Cook on medium low for 30-45 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft and the chicken is tender.
  • Transfer to a serving soup plate. Garnish with corriander. Serve with baguettes or hot steamed rice.
