  1. Fry potato and carrots in oil until cooked and edges are lightly browned. Once done, remove from oil and then set aside.
  2. Saute garlic and onion in the remaining oil over medium heat. Add chicken meat and sear each both sides for a minute. 
  3. Add the fish sauce, curry powder, paprika powder, and ground pepper. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add coconut milk, and let it simmer until sauce thickens. I like it really thick so I cook it a little longer.
  5. Add the carrots, potatoes and bell pepper and chili and cook for another minute.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish and serve with rice or your favorite side.


  • If fish sauce is not available, replace with 2 tsp salt or more depending on your taste.
  • Note that the longer you simmer the coconut milk, the oily the dish will become because coconut milk separates to coconut oil and curd when cooked longer
