In This Recipe
Whip all ingredients but the chicken in a bowl.
Cut the chicken in large pieces or strips and put it in a bowl. Cover it in the mix and leave for 20-30 minutes.
TIP: The velveting method is great for tenderizing chicken pieces in other dishes as well — try adding some spices to suit your needs. It also works with other types of meat, such as pork or beef, they just need to be left en the mix a little longer.
Heat the sesame oil in a wok or deep pan, and add the sliced garlic.
When the curry starts to lose color, add the coconut milk one tablespoon at a time, and stir it in. When you've added about 5 tablespoons, pour in the rest, and give it a good stir and bring it to a boil.
Serve over rice or noodles, lime wedges, and top with chopped cilantro.
TIP: This dish works just as well with pork or beef.
