This South East Asian dish has loads of fragrant, spicy flavors and the coconut milk gives it a creamy richness. It takes time to prepare it but is well worth the effort.
The meat is cooked together with the spices using slow heat until tender. This recipe requires your attention and constant stirring from liquid form to semi thick gravy. Best to use non stick pot to avoid sticking to the bottom. Let have a look at the recipe:
