You can use your favourite curry powder for this dish-whether it's Indian or South East Asian. I make this as a soup but you can make it a thicker curry by reducing the amount of chicken stock and water by half. Serve with rice.


Serves: 8 

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (1 1/2 kg) whole chicken, skin removed and cut into pieces
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/8 cup thinly sliced fresh ginger root
  • 1 stalk lemon grass, cut into 5cm pieces
  • 4 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 green capsicum, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 2 carrots, sliced diagonally
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • 1 litre water
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons chilli flakes
  • 8 small potatoes, quartered

  • 1 bunch fresh coriander
