  4. Hi and thank you for the video, can you please list how to make the curry powder please? Looks very different to mine

  5. Hi there, quick question what curry powder do you use. Babas? and would you also add galangal. Not sure why candel nut is used, I thought receipes like rendang is most appropriate

  6. Trying this recipe now. We lived in Singapore for 3 years and we all miss curry with roti. So that's on the menu today! I've left out the dried chillies as curry powder will be enough for my 3 kiddies 😬

  7. I just made this and also your roti canal and had it together for dinner me and my family loved it! So full of flavour

  11. I like your voice, it's soothing(╹◡╹) By the way, do you think there's a difference between sweating the onions first as opposed to boiling it? I mostly sweat them out of habit but can't really say why.

  12. I noticed in every dish you will add sugar.  Is there alternate recipe without sugar and still taste good.   As sugar is the killer for our body.  Preferable if there is no sugar.

  13. Its so different on how we cook the curry…
    We cook the curry by frying spices, then fry the small red onion and garlic, then we cook the chicken and potatoes then mixed it with curry with a few touch of water until the chicken is cooked about 3 minutes then we add water and boil it for 20 min approx.

  14. I have a question, what is the average time to fry the rempah? 5-10 minutes? 15-20 minutes? I saw some other recipes stating 45 minutes!

  15. Hey I am from India and want to try this recepie..kindly do assist with the following.

  21. The chicen nowagays cook very fast, 40 minutes will break them up beore the potatoes are done. I raise my own kampung chicen to cook curries, it is a bit tougher

  22. Assalamu elikum Nyonya, I sometimes watch your receipes but after seeing quite some of your cooking , I find that it is mostly similar to the Indian cooking receipes, from quite some time I was wondering how to integrate soy sauce ,fish sauce into my Indian regular meals, as I was found of both these ingredients and I am happy to find out that Malaysian cooking has all answers to my questions. Can you please write which brand soy sauce or fish sauce do you use in your cooking. Do you always use salt in your cooking because I heard that Asian people or people in Malaysia mostly use fish sauce in place of salt, is it true? you can email me if you like to. Allah Hafiz and Thank you.

  23. Been making this curry recipe for 2 times already but instead of chicken i use squid, it so good .. it taste like kopitiam curry^^

  24. I spent a month in Malaysia trying all sorts of variations cuisines from Malay, Chinese, Indian and all the fusions you can make out of the three. I absolutely fell in love with the food and now im craving it back here in Europe. That led me to your channel. Great job you did! Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe so now I can make it and transport into the amazing South-East Asia. 🙂

  25. Hello there, i am from the Philippines and i want to recreate your chicken curry recipe. By the way, is the suace similar to the one used in the Eurasian-style Curry Debal? I noticed that the differences were the addition of coconut milk, curry powder, curry leaves and absence of fresh chillies.
