Mamak chicken curry with yellow glutinous rice

I have bookmarked this Mamak chicken curry (Mamak is a term used in Malaysia to describe the Indian Tamil Muslim community and culture) long time ago, finally I got a chance to try it out yesterday. I also cooked yellow glutinous rice to serve with this chicken curry, very similar like those in baby full-month package.

No wonder Suhaina@ My Singapore kitchen said this is a best Mamak chicken, she adapted recipe from Pete. My kids love this curry very much especially Desmond who doesn't take too spicy curry, this mild curry just perfect for him. He make this order to me a least once in a week.

To serve with Yellow glutinous rice (steamed rice with turmeric), also a good choice!

Yummy yummy!

Eating chicken curry with yellow glutinous rice is not so common in south malaysia and Singapore. Not too long ago I told my husband I wanted to make yellow glutinous rice to eat with chicken curry and he gave me a deceiving look. I must ask him to read ur post then he would know that how delicous it can be.

Sonia,
You didn't make this with premixed curry powder and it looks perfect.
I am the lazy type and will just shy away from curries made from scratch.
There are just too many ingredients to assemble.

Tried it this curry this weekend, the key to this curry recipe is the coriander I think. Taste great with Rice cooked with two cloves, pinch of cumin, two Cardamom. Once the rice is cooked, put some salt, oil, mixed it up. Not as fancy as Yellow rice but its sure taste great.

Hai Sonia,pls advise.. 250ml of coconut milk means the first squeeze or may i also use the second sqeeze of santan from the same quantity of coconut debris? sorry im seriously tak pandai sangat in adjusting the receipe..depending heavily on your list..)))
