'Kam Heong' Chicken


 I've no idea how to name this dish so I just call it 'Kam Heong' Chicken...... 'Kam'  is a bit spicy due to the addition of the bird eye chillies though not in abundance and also the yellowish colour coming from the turmeric.  'Heong' is fragrant because of the lemon grass and curry leaves.  This dish is not spicy hot at all and can be served to kids as well.  Must admit that it paired well with white rice and also plain bread.

  7. The chicken looks so flavourful. I have all the ingredients except lemon grass. Will it make a huge difference without them?

    1. Think the lemon grass does make a difference, it's the aroma from it.
