Simplified Chicken Rendang Kunyit (Turmeric) Recipe

My simplified Rendand dish................I love to eat it with durian and rice! LOL!
I would normally store a bottle of fried kerisik (coconut grating) in my fridge and use it whenever I want to cook rendang (dry curry with coconut grating). This is a simplified rendang recipe and you can cook it in a jiffy. I used pre mixed Adabi Rendang curry powder, so it saved me the hassle of mixing my own rendang spice. Chicken don’t need long hours of cooking compared to beef. Therefore, I managed to prepare this wonderful dish within less than 30 minutes for dinner!

Chicken, ½, cut into small pieces
Adabi Rendang powder, mix with water to make a paste
Kunyit powder (turmeric), 1 tablespoon mix with Adabi Rendang paste
Kaffir Lime Leaves, 5 pcs, cut into small strips
Kerisik (fried grated coconuts), 1 tablespoon
Potato, 3, cut into four each, steamed until soft
Salt to taste

Serai(lemongrass), 2 pcs
Shallots, 5 pcs

Heat up wok and put in around 4 tablespoons of oil. Sauté serai and shallots mixture until fragrant. Add Adabi rendang powder and kunyit paste. Stir fry for a short while. Lower down the heat to avoid burning the paste. Add kerisik and kafir lime leaves. Put in the chicken and add a little water. Cover the wok until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Add in the pre boiled potato. Stir until all the gravy cover the potato. Add salt to taste.
