Cà ri gà (Vietnamese Chicken Curry)

  • 1 chicken (chopped into pieces) or chicken legs & thighs
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 stem lemongrass, ground
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • black pepper
  • 2 big carrots
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 taro
  • cooking oil
  • 2 lemongrass stems, smashed
  • 5 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 or 2 white onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 cans Coco Rico (coconut soda)
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 2 cans coconut milk
Cooking Directions
  1. Cut the chicken into pieces. Add sugar, salt, fish sauce, 1 lemongrass stem (ground), 1 tablespoon of curry powder, black pepper. Then mix them all and marinate overnight or 1 hour before cooking.
  2. Cut the carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, and taro into 1″ pieces. Heat a pot of oil over medium-high heat. Fry the vegetables first so they won’t break up in the curry. Set aside.
  3. In a large pot, sauté the 2 lemongrass stems (smashed), shallots, and white onion over medium heat. When they’re all caramelized, lower the heat and add 1 tablespoon curry powder and the paprika, cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add all the marinated chicken to the pot, raise the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring, until the chicken starts to cook. Add the Coco Rico and chicken broth; bring to a boil then let it cook at medium heat for 15 minutes.
  5. Add the carrots, and cook for 10 minutes. Then add the potatoes, sweet potato, and taro, then cook until everything becomes tender. Pour in the coconut milk, stir to combine, and taste for flavor. If needed, add more sugar, salt, or white onion. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat. Serve with French bread or rice.
