Thai Green Curry Chicken

Inspired by Marion in the Kitchen (Asian Food Channel) combined wit 30 min recipe of Jamie Oliver. I really want to give a try a home-made green curry chicken.
(just because the ingredients were not so many, and I confident enough to cook... LOL)

Last Saturday, with riding the scooter I went to grocery place to get he ingredients which actually not much thing. Once you have a jar of green curry paste in your fridge, and any vegetable.....
You just need to buy coriander, basil leaves, and coconut milk...

1 pack chicken breast (about 400 gram)
5 snake bean / long bean, cabbage (any vegetable you can find in the fridge)
1 green bell pepper
1 handful fresh coriander ( use the leaves for soup, save the stem to blend for gravy)
1/2 handful Thai basil leaves
1 small cup thick coconut milk
2 cup water
4 teaspoon green curry paste
1 onion
1 small know ginger (about 1 teaspoon size)
1 block chicken cubes / chicken stock
*blend onion, ginger, coriander basil stalk
1 stalk lemongrass (optional)
1 kefir lime leaves (optional)

I pan fried the chicken first to make it less "chickeny"
just enough to make them brown

Discard the oil from chicken, rinse the pan,
heat up 1 tablespoon sunflower (or any cooking oil)
sauté blended coriander and green curry paste until fragrant
add in the chicken

pour in coconut milk, water and long bean, lime leaves and lemon grass
just because the color is so greeny... I add in some red chili to give some heat
I also purposely reduce the amount of coconut milk to make the gravy lighter and easier to eat.

Once the long bean soften,
add in cabbage and bell pepper.
salt, bit of sugar and pepper if necessary
couple minutes before your serve,
throw in basil leaves and coriander

I don't like the pale color of curry
I chop some tomatoes and red chili for garnish

served with hot jasmine rice or rice noodle

We drove so far to Bangi, and we were hungry...
One kopitiam is waving its hand to us to try their food.

Effortless in Washing you dirty dishes

Is this your daily pantry's view ...?

It's my daily kitchen's view yes, bersemak samun menjolok mata. 
In the scenario you are just back from work every evening, and you have to deal with them. 
Kids and everyone fishy lunch, stained coffee cup, burnt pot and wok,
greasy plates and too many things you can't even bear look at them.


Ibu rasa nak pengsan....

Rasa nak pengsan, yes...
Especially when we don't have maid.
We have to do all ourselves start from grocery, cooking, serving, and washing..
Habis kemas je pengsan, and nothing left for quality time with the family

Ibu sibuk gosok buntut kuali, tak ada masa nak tolong abang buat homework....

ada macam tu..??

This expensive dishwasher liquid is my new best friend now...
RM 16 / 250ml
get my pocket empty easily...

hang on...

here I teach you how to wash dishes effortlessly with just a little drop of dishwasher

1. Fill 1/3 bucket with tap water and couple drop of dishwasher liquid of your fave

2. Add in boiling water, you can add as much as your hand can bear
 (I use rubber glove to protect my hand)


3. Soak your dirty dishes for about 10 min (Go Shower, pray or play with your kid)
Then wash the dish load by load
- First load is glass and cup, the less dirty one
- Cutlery
- plates
- Wok and pot

the reason of washing load by load is to avoid the grease and fishy smells from the plates/wok/pot contaminated the coffee cup.

soak my glasses and clean bowl.

I finish up my washing in just couple minutes

Clean kitchen without effort...

Plenty quality time to spend with the love one, instead of busy menggosok kuali...
Kan... :)
