I love quick fixes, and I am not ashamed of using instant curry sauce instead of pounding my own curry paste. A while ago, Bee from Rasa Malaysia featured a delicious curry chicken (咖喱鸡) recipe, and she introduced to me the A1 brand of curry sauce which she used (and don’t mind me sharing on my blog too, thank you!).

It can be bought readily in Singapore, at about S$2+ a packet. Ever since I discovered this curry, my pantry is never without it, for who can resist whipping up a delicious local-style curry in less than 30 minutes? My only tiny grouse with the curry sauce is that it is not hot enough, but this is easily solved by adding some chilli to up the heat meter. This is definitely one  of my favourite local home-cooked food, whipped up with very little effort.

  1. Love u wiffy!! Ur site is my no. 1 search whenever I inviting guests to my place.. Always got praises from them ;) and I have recommend to loads of friends to ur site! Well done gal! Keep it up!

  2. Tried this today and it was very tasty! Thanks for sharing!
    – instead of shallots, used fried garlic
    – no salt no additional chilli required.. Quite spicy
    – can serve 4.. Same quantity of ingredients
    – great to be able to cook this in 30 mins!

    Tip for those trying: when adding the curry paste, wear an apron.. Got lots of splatter on my clothes.. :)

  3. Hi Wiffy
    I plan to cook curry chicken for the first time this weekend. May I know how to get good coconut milk? Is there any difference between fresh and pre-packed type? Which brand do you recommend? Thanks.

    • Hi Felicia, fresh ones are superior to the pre-packed tetra type. But they don’t keep long. I used the tetra pak ones (Ayam brand) for convenience and I still find the curry delicious :)

    • Thanks for your prompt reply Wiffy!
      Do you have any step-by-step on abstracting fresh coconut milk? Questions I have are, how much water to how much grated coconut, how to use thick and thin coconut milk, how to keep reminder milk, etc? This info will be helpful esp when making kueh-kueh. Often, I avoid such recipes when they call for fresh coconut milk.
      I am glad that you used tetra pak ones for this recipe. I will give a try this Sunday and I am confident your recipe will work, as always ;o).

    • Hi Wiffy
      I tried your curry chicken recipe last Sunday and it was great! Thanks! I would encourage all first-time curry cooks to try this recipe!
      I was glad that I read “Eugene from Singapore” post not to add anymore chilli bec this dish is rather spicy for my family. May I know how to lower the spicy taste? Nevertheless, my family enjoyed it, of course there were lots of “sizzling” sound as we ate ;o). Thanks Wiffy.

    • Hi Felicia, glad you like it! still too spicy? :O Maybe you can add a bit more water, coconut milk to adjust.

    • hi, can i check if i use fresh grated coconut, how much to add? jus add into the curry like those milk type ?

    • If you use fresh grated coconut, you need to use a coconut squeezer filter bag to squeeze out the coconut juice. quantity same as the amount of coconut milk stated in the recipe.

    • tks alot! tried it liao! hubb say nice!! cos mayb fresh coconut , aroma is much nicer!! i added chilli powder to marinate the chicken first! extra oomph! n dip in old school roti!! slurp!!

  4. Hi wiffy

  5. I love lady’s fingers in curry! Funnily enough, I’ve just posted an entry on a chicken curry recipe as well! I tried making it with ladies fingers once but it turned out awfully soggy unfortunately.

    Anyway, I’ll definitely be sure to add it in at the end next time!

  7. Hi Wiffy,
    Yesterday, i tried your Curry Chicken recipe using A1 curry paste + Ayam brand (tetra pak) coconut milk. It’s delicious and my family love it. Thanks!
    However, i found that the coconut milk does not mix thoroughly into the gravy. It sort of ‘separated’ from the curry gravy. (I hope you know what i’m telling to say).
    May i know how to get a smoothly mixed curry gravy with the coconut milk?

  8. Dear Wiffy,
    Tried your Curry Chicken receipe with A1 curry paste and Ayam coconut milk yesterday. It was delicious and my family love it!
    However, i found that the coconut milk was not thoroughly mixed into the gravy, it was sorted of separated. I hope you know what i meant.
    Pls advise how to mix the coconut milk until it was smooth and completely mixed into the curry gravy.
    Thanks, May.

    • Is it because the stove flame was too strong. At high temperature, milk will curd. That is why it is important to first reduce heat before stirring in the coconut milk (just to warm the curry, not boil).
