Opor Ayam Blend

5/5 from 1 Customers

This is a popular curry throughout Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. ‘Opor’ means to be braised in coconut milk and ‘ayam’ is the Indonesian/Malaysian translation of chicken (but it also works beautifully with tofu and green beans!). It’s a mild and fragrant curry perfect for the whole family to enjoy - all it needs is a fiery chilli sauce on the side for those who like a bit of heat!

150 g shallots or 1 medium red onion - roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic - roughly chopped
Fresh ginger - roughly chopped to make 2 tbsp
A few kaffir lime leaves or 2 lemongrass stalks (optional) - cut into 3cm lengths and bashed with a rolling pin
