Kari Ayam (Malaysian Chicken Curry)

කුකුල් මස් ව්‍යංජනය

Kari Ayam is another chicken curry I tried from Malaysian cuisine. This recipe is well matching with Sri Lankan Chicken Recipes and the taste. In Kari Ayam, some sugar is added. But, this tastes much even without adding sugar. I found the way of cooking   is slightly different from Sri Lankan Chicken recipes. Anyway,this chicken curry is best with rice or any breads.

Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Today I noticed that I have shared lot of vegetable recipes past few days. This Kari Ayam was cooked few weeks ago. I’ve forgotten to post it and I guess this post will be attracted to some of you who likes non veg dishes.
