Kari Ayam



Kari Ayam is a popular Malaysian dish consisting of chicken cooked in a spicy curry sauce. The dish is usually served with steamed white rice or roti canai. The curry sauce is made with coconut milk, shallots, ginger, garlic and birds eye chili. The dish is usually quite spicy, but can be adjusted to suit individual tastes. Some variations also add a dash of fish sauce for that umami flavour.
