Korean “Curry” (Spicy and Tangy Chicken in Korean Chilli Sauce)


I was not sure on what to call this dish as it is a dish i came up with, but since it is spicy and thick, i will call it Korean “curry”. I am very surprised how well this dish turned out even though it was a rather impromptu recipe that i can came up with in my mind. It is spicy, tangy and fragrant. The sauce goes extremely well with rice, making me crave for more rice when i finished my plate. I was absolutely blown by the flavour combination!

  2. 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  3. 3 shallots, sliced
