Lolo’s Chicken Curry

This meal is so very much loved by my family. It’s a delicious, mild curry that has been an amazing introduction to more exotic flavours. In my house we actually call this recipe ‘Filipino Curry’. I am not sure why but it isn’t exactly specific to Filipino cuisine. Instead I have named it Lolo’s Chicken Curry, “Lolo” being Tagalog (a Filipino dialect) for grandfather, because he was the one that taught me how to make this when I first left home. I hope you enjoy making this as much as I do, and as much as my family enjoy eating it!
