- Curry leaves (fresh if possible) x 15
- Brown onion (diced) x 1

- Garlic (finely chopped) x 3 cloves
- Vegetable oil x 2 tablespoons
- Turmeric (grounded) x 1 teaspoon

Mix the chicken with 2 tablespoons of curry powder and salt. Leave to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight for best results.
Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil on high. Add in the chicken, searing each side for about 3 minutes or until brown. Then put aside.
Reduce the heat to medium. Add in the other 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once heated, add in the garlic and onion. Sauté for 3 minutes or until fragrant.
Add in the curry paste, chilli, turmeric and lemongrass. Cook for 1 minute while stirring until fragrant (to activate the flavours of the spices).
Stir in the curry leaves and soy milk. Then bring to a boil and reduce the heat to low.
Add in the potatoes and seared chicken pieces. Cover and then simmer for 30 minutes or until the chicken and potato is tender.
Slowly stir in the coriander and cook for another 2 minutes.
Serve with rice and/or sliced cucumber for garnish.
