    last friday I made your chicken curry as an example filipino dish in our assembly for the World Day of Prayer here in Germany. Every year we try to cook some of the fine dishes from countrys all over the world.
    In preparation of this occasion, I found your site and its a Joy to read and learn about filipino cooking.
    Your Chicken Curry is delicious. even without patis (I could get only a Thai fish sauce) And I add a lot more coconut milk, so it was more like a Stew and many peole could try it.
    This wasn’t my last visit on your site and especially this recipe is a new favorite of mine and also my husband find yummy, yummy
    Greetings from Germany, Sabine

    • Sel says:

      Yep, I just use the plain curry powder.

  103. Demiano Stefanelli says:

    Hi. I tried your recipe and it was good. I had already made a version of it that was Cuban-Chinese: using 3″ wide cuts of thin chicken cutlets, potatoes skinned and cut in the shape of silver dollars, and wide cuts of yellow onion. It is all sauteed in oil and garlic, on cup of water added along with one teaspoon of soy sauce and one tablespoon of curry powder. I also like it. Because of its cholesterol content, I do not use coconut milk. For those who may also be concerned about this, I recommend using plain Greek natural yogurt. It is delicious and healthier. People either love curry or they hate it. I find it addicting. Sige Poh….

  104. Paolo says:

    Nice.. i’ll try to cook this one 🙂
