Chicken Curry Kapitan 甲必丹咖喱鸡

I learnt this Nyonya Curry from few Penang's aunties. This curry basically using all fresh herbs ingredients. And this curry has a hint of tangy taste  as lime juices is added into this recipe. You may omit lime juices if you couldn't accept this taste but I love it!













You can use all fresh red chili for this recipe (for this recipe you can use 15 fresh red chili) but i prefer to add some dried chili to get more spicy curry and colour to be look deeper.
