Kum Heong Kai ~ Golden Spicy Fragrant Chicken

A relatively simple recipe with very few ingredients yet producing a dish with very intense flavour. It is spicy but not 'hot'. This is the healthy version as I prefer not to deep fry the chicken.


6 drumsticks or 1kg chicken, cut to pieces
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tbsp cooking oil
5 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1 tsp coriander seeds or powder
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 tbsp curry powder
Salt to taste

1. Marinade chicken with sugar and light soy sauce for about 30 minutes.
2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wok or frying pan. Sauté chopped garlic until fragrant. Add in chicken, coriander and curry leaves. Season with curry powder and salt.
3. Cover, turn down the heat and cook for a further 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked.

Note : I did not need to add any water during the cooking process as there was a fair bit of liquid from the chicken. If you find it dry, add in a little water.
