First up was Kari Ayam, an Indonesian chicken curry. This recipe was full of many flavorful spices–– cardamon, cumin, star anise, coriander, turmeric, ginger and curry powder –– along with chicken, shallots and potatoes. Sadly, the recipe also included coconut milk, which I am allergic to, so I only was able to take a small taste before having to scratch the hives on my hands.
The chicken was sauteed in all the yummy spices before adding the coconut milk.
First we had to brown raw peanuts for the sauce.
