Nyonya Chicken Curry with Chilli Sambal

4.8/5 from 5 Customers

The word ‘nyonya’ is a respectful term for the female elder of the Peranakan community - descendants of Chinese migrants who settled in Malaysia and Singapore then intermarried with the locals. Here we’re making a chicken curry consisting of incredibly tender meat in a rich and spicy sauce. It's served with a spicy chilli sambal - the region's favourite condiment!

Found the spices in the back of a cupboard, dated 2014. Risked them and was right to do so. Turned cucumber salad into Kosambari, The braised Aubergines and Sambal were delicious too. What a Nonya Feast.

How wonderful- the Kosambari looks divine and everything looks so rich and flavoursome!

We have had excellent customer service from The Spicery and recommended them to our family and friends. Originally it was bought as a gift for us but now we have our own subscription.

Very helpful when telephoned but it is a bit confusing as I wanted to order sets for my brother who does not have any time to log on but this was not an option. I got round this by a different delivery address but was told unless I had a subscription I could not order the box sets but I can so that was good.
