Healthy Thermomix Chicken Curry Recipe

skinnymixers ayam kapitan

Known as the Capitans Curry, this is a spicy, salty and slightly sour Malaysian chicken curry with a legend to its name that I recommend you look up. I first tried the Ayam Capitan at the Penang Spice Gardens, where I took a private tour and cooking class. If you ever find yourself in Penang, I cannot recommend visiting the Spice Gardens for a cooking class highly enough.
