Gulai Darat Ayam - 香辣咖哩鸡

Little Thumbs Up is coming to June now. This month our host is Ms B from Everybody eats well in Flanders with her theme 'It's Curry time!' simply. Her ingredient is 'curry powder/curry paste'  
'小姆子说好' 来到了六月份. 六月的主持是Ms B (Everybody eats well in Flanders) 和她的主题'咖哩粉/咖哩酱'
This is my first dish for Little Thumbs Up :)
I get to know this dish when it was MFF - Kelantan month. I bookmarked it  but did not manage to cook it on that month. My list is way too long like a locomotive heehee. Now i am going to cook this for Little Thunbs Up 'It's curry time' month.
Gulai Darat Ayam, gulai in Malay simply means a type of dish/food containing rich, spicy and succulent curry with sauce/gravy. My main ingredients here is chicken and it also might be poultry, beef or mutton for this kind of gulai dish.
今天第一道给'小姆子说好'的咖哩料理是 '香辣咖哩鸡' 是一道kelantan的咖哩叫Gulai Darat Ayam. Gulai的意思是香浓和辣的咖哩. 主材料是鸡,牛肉或羊肉.

This dish it simple and easy to prepare. Get ready the ingredients, get the curry paste ready and start cooking :p

It is creamy, slightly spicy (i add 2 little chili only), a hint of sourness from the tamarind peels and full of curry flavor. It is so good to have with LOTs of steam rice :p

这到咖哩很还蛮容易煮味道又特别. 材料也简单. 首先把材料准备好. 把酱料用搅拌器搅拌成泥.就可以开始煮了. 这道咖哩的味道呢!! 是浓浓的酱, 香香咖哩味, 带点阿三片的微酸和椰浆的甜味道很不错. 很下饭呢!! 还有!还有!里边还加了熟蛋一起煮味道更好更好吃!
