Ayam Kapitan – Malaysian Curry Chicken — 15 Comments

  1. Hi Tina,

    First off, CONGRATULATIONS! You are the winner of the Children’s Book Week Giveaway Hop prize at my blog: Picture Books Help Kids Soar! I will send you a copy of my great parent/teacher resource, Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking AND a bunch of craft supplies AND a copy of the Tale of Peter Rabbit! Please email me with your address so I can get that out to you. I am leaving for Singapore on Thursday morning to speak at the Asian Festival of Children’s Content…all about using picture books to build self-esteem. 🙂 My email is: peacemakr001@q.com or viviankirkfield@gmail.com

    I LOVE your curry dish. My first date with my husband was to an Indian Restaurant in NYC…we were living there at the time. We loved it so much, we went back EVERY week for the next 5 years until we moved away. But by then, I had learned to make many of the dishes we loved. All of my children adore Indian food and all kinds of curries…and now THEIR children are enjoying it too! Thanks for sharing this great recipe…love the photos…now I am hungry.:)

    I hope you will come back to my blog again…I’m always posting great picture book reviews and activities and also parenting tips.

    • I’m so excited that I won! Thank you so much!

      And thanks for your kind comments about this post. I think you’ll really enjoy this curry dish, though you’ll find it’s quite different than most Indian curries. When you get a chance to try it, let me know what you think! Maybe you can even find Ayam Kapitan on a menu in Singapore!

      I really enjoy your blog and will be back to visit often. I’ve just signed up to receive it by email!

      Have a great trip!

  2. It really does look yummy and I totally love the “chicken, captain” story, lol! So cute! Thanks so much for linking up to “Making Your Home Sing Monday” linky party!

    • My pleasure. Thank you for hosting it! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the Ayam Kapitan when you get a chance to make it. We LOVE it and hope you will too! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. I made this tonight and it is amazing! I added some assorted veggies and it was really nice. It was just as good as I remembered it. Thanks for being on-call for my candlenut questions! I had some good cultural experiences at the market looking for the things I’ve never used before, like galangal, fresh turmeric (both of which I want to try to grow on our balcony), and candlenuts (which I now know as buah keras). This is going to be a regular at our house. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. Tina, We had this for dinner last night and it was really good. Probably the first curry dish I’ve made that every person in the family enjoyed. And what was interesting is that today the leftovers were even better. This is a really nice but economical dish. Thanks for sharing! I would love to hear about other recipes you’ve gleaned from cooking class. 😉

    • Hurray! I’m so glad you liked it! Thanks for letting me know. We’ve actually found the same thing – that it’s even better on day 2! I like to put rice and the leftover kapitan in a casserole dish and bake it the next day. It’s so yummy!

  5. Hey…the curry sauce is made and Sarah thinks it smells great. Looking forward to dinner tonight! No candlenuts, galangal or red chilies so I had to substitute…we will see! Glad to be reminded of this recipe yesterday.

  6. My kids and I love our local Malaysian and they love roti so wanted to recreate something at home and this is now a favourite! Thanks so much
