"Malaysian" Curry and Samosa's

I was at a Chinese grocery store a couple weeks ago with my friend, and we were just browsing... It was my first time in the store, I love going to new stores and finding foods I haven't seen before. I was so excited when I found some packets of instant Thai tea!!! Something else I found was a packet of Malaysian Curry Powder, which I decided to pick up and try. It turned out to be a great powder for whenever I'm in the mood for something different. I didn't follow the recipe on the back of the pack, as it called for milk and I didn't have any... So I tried something different, and I really loved it. Of course, this is something of my own making using the curry powder, just something that tasted good!

Ingredients:

  • 2 yellow onions
  • 3 green chilies, seeds removed
  • 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • 2 large chicken breasts, chopped
  • 2 - 3 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons Malaysian Curry Powder
  • salt, to taste
  • few tablespoons vegetable oil
Method:
  1. Fry the onions and green chilies in oil until the onions start to brown. Grind along with the can of coconut milk.
  2. Fry the chicken in oil until it starts to turn white. Add carrots, salt and curry powder, fry for a few more minutes. Add the coconut milk mixture and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until desired consistency is achieved. Serve with rice!!!

Another thing the powder came in handy for was a tasty filling for veggie samosas. I was running out of groceries and hadn't gone shopping in awhile, so I used what I had and made these yummy samosas. I had a partial bag of mixed veggies in the freezer and some leftover rice from the night before. So, I fried the veggies with a couple teaspoons of the curry powder, and threw in some rice, heated it up... cooled it down, stuffed it in some dough, fried it up, and enjoyed!!!
