Devil’s Curry

I am big fan on Malaysian cooking so I decided to try their famous Devil’s curry. I used Chicken and potatoes and lots of chillies. If you are not into chilli, this is definitely not the recipe for you but if you love spicy food, you can give it a go.

The amount of chilli in this recipe can be adjusted according to your taste. The following recipe is for hot curry.


For Spice Paste:

  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 15 dried red chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 5 fresh garlic cloves
  • 3” knob of ginger
  • 3 stems of lemongrass, white part only, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup of oil
  • 2 tablespoons of water

Other ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoons of mustard seeds
  • 1 kg of chicken breast fillet cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • Salt to taste


  • Add all the spices in a blender and make a smooth paste. The paste will be thick.
