Singapore Chicken Curry

1. Rub curry powder into the chicken; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Heat oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over high heat; add ginger to the pot and stir for 4-5 minutes, or until ginger is brown on both sides. Remove ginger from the pot and set aside.

3. Lower temperature to medium heat and add the shallots; stir and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until shallots are golden brown.

4. Add remaining curry powder, lemongrass, lime leaves, curry leaves, and thai chilies. Stir for 4 minutes or until chilies release a spicy vapour.

5. Add chicken to the pot and stir to coat.

6. Stir water into the pot to deglaze and scrape down the sides with a wooden spoon.

7. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked almost all the way through. To check doneness, cut into a piece of chicken. Chicken should still be slightly pink in the middle.

8. Add coconut milk, tamarind, and tomatoes to the pot and stir.

9. Simmer curry over medium-high heat for 5 minutes until chicken is cooked all the way through.

10. Before serving, taste curry and season with sugar, lemon juice, or salt, to taste. Serve.
