Soup: Indonesian: Apor White Curry

A cold day and this dish took me straight back to my home from 40 yrs ago. I am pretty sure mum use to make this as she cooked Indonesian dishes over the years.

As the lovely spices were added to the pot it brought comfort food to a new level, the aromas, the taste just divine. I found the spice paste in a Asian supermarket and all you add is chicken, coconut milk and water. So easy as it’s just boiled chicken then low simmer with spice paste and coconut milk. I served mine w basmati rice but it truely didn’t need it. I used a powdered coconut milk sachet which didn’t mix properly but it was still a great dish.

2nd time I made this no lumps as I used raw c coconut milk
