Sambal is a spicy Malaysian paste made from tomatoes, shallots, garlic, chilli and sugar.
This simple recipe combines classic fragrant, citrusy Sambal with coconut milk and meaty chicken drumsticks.
1 Tin of Coconut Milk
Coriander, finely chopped
Long grain rice
Preheat a fan oven to 160C.
In a cast iron dish combine the sambal curry paste and coconut milk, place over a medium-high heat and bring gently to the boil.
Generously season the chicken drumsticks and drop into the pan of liquor.
Add the lid to the pan and place into the preheated oven. Cook for around 2 hours, or until the chicken is beautifully tender and easy to pull away from the bone.
Follow the cooking instructions for the rice.
Serve the sambal curry alongside sticky rice and pickles.
