Curry Chicken - Most people will adore this dish. Nowaday with more and more ready to use paste and premix coming up, to cook curry becomes a rather easy task. The Curry that I had for today's dinner was not made from premix. My Aunt make her own rempah & use her favourite brand of Nonya curry powder to cook it. Her curry chicken definitely taste better than those uses ready paste.
