It is the curry chicken recipe that comes into my mind when I think about the best Chinese recipes to enjoy rice or noodles.
Curry chicken is very rich, flavorful, and aromatic. Curry means sauce, and this sauce is spicy without being too hot.
It's one of the unique Chinese cooking recipes you want to make as one of your firm favorites. It's also one of the chicken recipes that you can personalize easily according to your own taste. It's a Chinese noodle recipe too.
1. For the Chicken:
2. For the Sauce:
Heat the oil in a wok or pan over high heat.
Add the onion into the wok. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes. Then add the garlic, chilies, and ginger to fry for about 1 minute.
Turn down the heat to low and keep cooking, stirring occasionally until the onion is soft. (Tip: make sure you don't burn the spices. If you do, the sauce will taste acrid and bitter. Add a little bit of hot water if it thickens too quickly.)
Put the water in a blender or food processor, add the cooled contents of the pan and blend until smooth.
Add the flour and blend again.
Put the pureed mixture back in the pan to simmer for about 30 minutes over a very low heat. To make sure the sauce won't be burned, stir now and then.
When the sauce is like a thick paste, gradually put in the bouillon, stir and simmer until the sauce has reduced.
Step 3: the final step
Coat the chicken with the corn flour
Heat the oil over a high heat, add the chicken until well cooked. Add the peas and onions and stir-fry for a few more minutes. (Tip: You can add your favorite veggies here, broccoli, snow peas, mushrooms or bell pepper. Your choice.)
