Look at this...
...is it one of those tasty soup with buttery flaky puff pastry?
Is it a pot pie?
I'd think so too, but this isn't.
The flaky buttery top is made of frozen roti pratha and under it...curry chicken!
If you want to make something that looks impressively pretty, tastes absolutely delicious and extremely easy to make. This one's for you.
- 1 frozen roti pratha (per serving/per pot) and a bit of butter
- 2 chicken leg fillet, remove skin, cut into bite size chunks
- 2 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 cm ginger, crushed
- 2 shallot, thinly sliced
- 1 lemongrass, sliced into 5cm long pieces
- a few kaffir lime leaves
- a cup coconut milk
- flour (optional), hot water, cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar, ground corriander, cumin
or you can skip all of these spices and just cook the chicken chunks with your favorite curry paste, red, green, or yellow, and coconut milk.
Preheat oven to 200C. Saute aromatics in some hot oil, add chicken chunks until they're a bit browned, add spices and seasoning, add coconut milk, thicken with some flour to give your "pie filling" some volume if you wish, or skip it and let coconut milk do all the thickening. Pour curry chicken into an oven proof pot, place frozen roti pratha on top, brush with butter, bake until roti pratha is golden brown.
Grab a spoon, push the buttery and flaky frozen pratha into your thick and rich curry for maximum enjoyment.
Licking lips optional.
