chicken curry recipe
I am lucky to have grown up in a multiracial nation and get to eat a variety of food and cuisine since small. This Chicken Curry With Potatoes is one of my favorite dishes.

Today I am going to share the recipe of this home cook yummy chicken curry with potatoes my mum fed my siblings and me for many many years. You can either eat it with rice or dip with bread then later savor the meat and potatoes.

Cooking for the family is not an easy task, which I only realized it after leaving home to pursue further education, then again, when I have my own family.

My mum used to cook at least 2 meals with 2 – 3 dishes a day during the weekdays. A good collection of recipes is important in order to keep the everyday diners happily and welly fed. I can feel the stress of being a full-time cook for the family and I haven’t had the gut to take up the job yet.

Before I am ready for the job, I need to build up my recipe collection, practice till they are perfected. Luckily, I have a supportive husband and kids, they always said that I have the talent in cooking because they like what I cook even if it is for the first try. Maybe it is because I learned the tips and secrets from my mum during the up-bringing as I have to help in the kitchen.

I hope you like this chicken curry with potatoes which is mildly spice (depends on the spicy level of the fresh chilies) and creamy in taste and texture.
