Devil Curry


An exotic hot curry for chicken, potatoes and onion, this makes any occasion festive.


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water, or as needed
  • 6 red onions, chopped
  • 25 chile peppers, sun-dried
  • 7 candlenuts
  • 1 shrimp paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3 lemon grass
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 ¼ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 ¼ pounds potatoes
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. In a medium bowl combine the onions, chile peppers, candlenuts, shrimp paste, turmeric, ginger, galangal, lemon grass and mustard seed. Blend together with a little water to form a fine paste. Add to skillet and saute until fragrant and almost dry.
  2. Add 2 cups water and bring all to a boil. Add chicken and potatoes. Reduce heat and let simmer about 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked (no longer pink inside) and curry is quite thick in consistency.
  3. Add salt to taste. Remove from heat and add vinegar. Mix well and serve. This dish is best served with steamed white rice, as it is full of flavor.
