Chicken Feet Curry, Lutong Pinoy

Chicken Feet Curry, Lutong Pinoy

Most Pinoy will most likely shun away from the very aromatic and spicy standard curry dish.

Pinoys have however develop a version of chicken curry is far milder and with very minimal aromatic ingredients.
At times the curry ingredients are so minimal that a curry lover foreigner will not even categorize the Pinoy curry as a real curry dish.

Never the less this version of curry is one of the favorite of a lot of Pinoy.
On this recipe instead of using chicken meat, I opted to use chicken feet.
The resultant dish is a delicious curry dish with thick and creamy sauce.

To make the dish I have to pre-boil the chicken feet with lemongrass, ginger, garlic, peppercorns and some bay leaf to get rid of that gamey taste of the chicken feet.

Cooking is method is basically similar to my other curry recipes.Check out my other curry recipes.
