Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1.5kg whole chicken
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
2 teaspoons salt
60ml fish sauce
375ml thick coconut milk
3 large onions, thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
60g besan
500ml thin coconut milk
500g dried rice noodles
or 1kg fresh rice noodles
2 teaspoons chilli oil
4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

Method

  1. Joint the chicken into portions.
  2. Put the chicken portions into a saucepan with the turmeric, salt, fish sauce and just enough water to almost cover. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the chicken is tender. Allow to cool, then strain, reserving the stock. Discard the skin and bones and finely shred the meat.
  3. Put the thick coconut milk into a large saucepan over medium heat and stir constantly until it becomes thick and the oil rises to the top. Add half of the onion and all of the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until they start to colour. Add the chicken and stir constantly, for a few minutes. Set aside.
  4. Mix the besan with just enough cold water to form a thin cream. Add the thin coconut milk to a separate saucepan and when it comes to a boil, stir in the besan mixture. Cook and stir constantly until it thickens, taking care it does not become lumpy or stick to the pan. Gradually add the strained chicken stock until the gravy is as thick as a stew. Add the chicken and onion mixture.
  5. If fresh rice noodles are bought as large sheets, cut them into narrow strips and soak in boiling water to heat through. If using dried noodles, cook them in a saucepan of boiling water until tender. Drain well and place in a serving bowl.
  6. Bring the chicken combination to simmering point, stir in the chilli oil, then remove from the heat and serve immediately with the noodles, egg and remaining onion served separately.
