Singaporean Curry Chicken

Serves: 1-2


  • 100 gm Singaporean curry paste, easily available either online or in local stores
  • 100 gm coconut milk powder
  • 40 gm broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 200 gm chicken breast, boneless, cut into medium-sized pieces
  • 600 ml water
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 dried red chillies, broken into small pieces
  • 1-2 tsp oil

For serving:

  • Cream
  • Steamed rice


  • Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed kadhai or wok. 
    Add the broccoli, red chillies and saute for a few minutes.
    Add the chicken along with the Singaporean curry paste and stir.
    Add some of the water and cover the kadhai so the chicken cooks.
    Take off the lid after a bit and bring the curry to a boil.
    Lower heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the coconut milk powder along with some of the remaining water.
    Mix well so that there are no lumps.
    Add the coconut milk to the gravy.
    Add remaining water carefully -- do not add too much more water or else the gravy will become very thin.
    Add salt and taste for seasoning.
    Check the consistency of the gravy.
    Add more water if required.
    Let the curry simmer for a few minutes.
    Take off heat.
  • Serve with a drizzle of cream and arrange the rice on one side of a plate and the curry on the other side for better visual effect and Instagram pics :) (Please check the pic above).
