Chicken with Fresh Mushroom Curry

Another simple curry yet flavourful if you don't mind using only curry powder for the spicy taste.  Moreover, this curry uses fresh king oyster mushroom [erngyii mushrooms/sin pau koo] and carrots.  So you can either add more of it and reduce the quantity of chicken or vice versa.    This curry tasted sourish sweet cos' of the tamarind juice.  You can also cooked it as a thick or watery curry according to you preference.  

[serves 3-4]
2 big chicken thighs - skin removed and cut into bite size pieces 
3-4 stalks of fresh mushrooms [erngyii] - cut into wedges
1/2 small carrot - sliced
1 onion - peeled and cut into chunks
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp curry powder -mixed with some water into a paste
2 tbsp oil
6 pieces kaffir lime leaves  
1 tbsp tamarind paste mixed with 1 cup water and squeezed out the juice
1 tsp each of salt and sugar to taste  

  1. Heat oil to saute garlic and onions until aromatic.  Add in curry powder [more if you want the curry to be spicy].  Fry until fragrant.
  2. Add in the chicken, mushrooms and carrots.  Stir fry to mix well.
  3. Add in tamarind juice, bring to a boil, add seasoning.  Lower heat to simmer for about 20 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  4. Taste to adjust seasoning and add in kaffir lime leaves.  Dish out to serve hot with rice.

Kimmy, I never thought of putting mushrooms in curry. It must be very delicious and will need extra rice!

Hi Phong Hong, these mushrooms [king oyster/erngyii] looks quite like chicken meat after cooking.

Hello Joyce, I liked the mushrooms more than the chicken, hehehe!. Will look up for your mushroom curry.
