Thanks to Aunt Hamidah, Sera's mom... My childhood friend and a very good friend. They have taught me this very delicious chicken dish. Very simple and absolutely finger liking good! Not necessary with chicken only, it goes well with fish, beef and even prawn... the smell of fresh turmeric and lemongrass gives a lot of authentic taste and tangy aroma. And It is just irresistible.. YAYY..... I can't help myself from eating double as much as than usual.... Dealing with it, I am lacking of self control.... YAY....
Traditionally adding in coconut milk, nowadays will be more convenient with packed and pasteurized coconut milk... 250 ml in a packet is equivalent to 1 thick coconut milk... In my cooking, if I am using ready-to-use coconut milk, I love to mix in evaporated milk to add more milky taste into the dish...

- Blend turmeric and chilies
