This recipe is from rasamalaysia.com. It's a food/recipe blog I stumbled upon and it's great food porn. He states in the recipe that this is not exactly authentic but delicious nonetheless. I tried it tonight in bun(Vietnamese cold noodle salad) and it was soooo good! Would be so good on just plain steamed white rice too!

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine the fish sauce, garlic, curry powder, salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the sugar. Add the chicken meat to coat. Marinade for 1/2 hour to a hour.
  2. In a small skillet, mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar with 1 tablespoon of the water and cook over high heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Cook without stirring until a deep amber caramel forms. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of water. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. Heat a wok over high heat. Add the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the lemongrass, shallot, and chilies and stir-fry until fragrant. Add the chicken and caramel and stir-fry until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened. Transfer to a bowl and top with the scallion. Serve with steamed white rice.
