Kari-Kay (Nyonya Chicken Curry)

This is a dish traditionally served to celebrate a new born baby’s full moon for Malaysian Chinese. This curry recipe uses fresh herbs that are ground into a paste for a fresh curry sauce. Spices are then added. I found this makes a delicious curry without having to use premixed curry powder.

Author's Notes

You may also cook your potatoes separately in an air fryer. Coat your potatoes with oil and air fry at 160C for 10 - 15 minutes until the potatoes cook and soft. Add the potatoes to curry when it is ready.
