Description

"Mẹ" is "mom" in Vietnamese. It's not pronounced "Me" but more like "Meh-ah." That's how it sounds like anyway. I have to start learning how to pronounce Vietnamese better…

Anyway, Mẹ first taught my husband this dish when he was my boyfriend because every year on Valentine's, it's been tradition for my hubby to cook for me. By the third year, he ran out of ideas because he barely knows how to fry eggs in the kitchen so Mẹ stepped in and helped him out with this dish. Every since I tasted it, I knew I had to learn how to make it because it was just so delicious and though I've had a lot of coconut curry in Thai restaurants, this one always tasted spicier, more exotic, with more depth to the flavors.

    Directions

    1. Cut up boneless chicken, clean and put in colander to dry.
    2. In a mixing bowl, add the sea salt, Curry powder (you can put in more later but start with 2 tablespoons), garlic and mix.
    3. Take pot and heat it up. Then add 2 teaspoon of oil (I used peanut but olive is fine too, for those who like to cook with olive oil - I prefer olive oil raw). Add chicken and brown on medium heat for ten minutes or until browned.
