Chicken Curry

I like using the ready made curry paste from Thailand for some of my curry dishes. The brand the I like to used is Mae-Ploy and they have serveral kind paste like Green Curry, Panang Curry, Yellow Curry, Masman Curry. For this dish I used Masman Curry paste and it has all the ingredient like shallots,garlic, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, ginger and other spices in it. So it safe me the hassle of pounding or grinding those ingredients.

Ingredients :

4 pieces of chicken thigh - cut into bite size pieces
2 tbsp of curry paste
2 tbsp of curry powder
1 tsp of chili powder
1 1/2 cup of coconut milk (more or less)
3 potatoes - cut small
a small bunch of Thai basil
1 tsp of sugar
salt and pepper to taste

1) Mix the curry paste, curry powder and chili powder into paste with a little bit of water.
2) Heat up some oil in a pan and stir-fry the paste until fragrant.
3) Add in the chicken and stir fry until the chicken changes color.
4) Add in the coconut milk and bring to boil. Turn down the heat to simmer.
5) Add in potatoes, stir and cover and simmer till the potatoes and chicken are fully cooked.
6) Add in sugar, salt and pepper. Turn off the flame and add in the basil.
7) Serve with warm rice.

Beachlover, I've tried all their paste and they are really good. I like it because is not oily.
