European Creamy Chicken Curry & my injured finger
Here is the recipe.
European Creamy Chicken Curry
Chicken breast 500g
Heavy Cream 300ml
Coconut Cream 400ml
Curry Powder 4 Table spoon
Chili powder 1 tea spoon
Ginger size of a thumb.
Salt and Peppeer for taste
Oil 1 table spoon
Parsley 1 tea spoon (optional)
1. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and grind ginger.
2. Add oil into a frying pan and sauté chicken. Add curry powder and chili powder to it and sauté more.
3, When chicken changed its color, add heavy cream, coconut milk and ginger then bring to boil.
4, Let it simmer for about 5~10mins until chicken is cooked. Add salt and pepper and adjust the taste. If you think there is not enough curry, add more curry powder. (I like lots of curry powder in it)
5. Serve with rice. It looks great if you sprinkle some chopped parsley on top.
This taste really good and difficult to stop eating. Personally, I like adding lots of ginger so I can taste slight spiciness from the ginger.
By the way, I cut myself pretty deep with a bread knife. I was trying to slice a hard bread and cut my left pointy finger open. The cut was pretty deep and it was bleeding quite a lot so I even thought about going to a doctor but after a while the bleeding stopped and the cut seemed like trying to heal itself so fixed a piece of chopsticks next to my finger and taped it so I don't bend the finger and open the wound which is trying to heal.
Actually, my husband made this construction for me. Can you see that there are two chop sticks on left and right side of my finger? It is like a brace.
Anyway, it just takes twice as much time to do anything. Th most problematic area is shower and also washing my hand in a restroom and stuff. Washing dishes are OK because I can just wear the rubber gloves but taking a shower and trying not to wet the finger is very difficult. Also, cooking is difficult with this finger. This sucks. Everyone, please be careful when you cut hard bread. Be very careful...
