Chicken Curry with Bamboo Shoots

Chicken Curry with Bamboo Shoots

Chicken Curry with Bamboo Shoots. I thought using strips of bamboo shoots instead of the traditional vegetable for the Pinoy chicken curry would be great. Bamboo shoots are great stewed with coconut milk and a lot of chili, why not try it on the Pinoy chicken curry. I found this bottled bamboo shoots in a Thai food store that is ideal for my chicken curry with bamboo shoots. For this version, I wanted it richer and spicier compared to the regular Pinoy chicken curry. I used generous amount of coconut milk and curry powder. I also added extra chilies, but any amount will do it defends on how much heat one could take to enjoy the meal. Here is the recipe.
