2 medium brown onions,chopped 
2 teaspoon salt 
½ cups (375 ml/12 fl oz) coconut milk 

½ cup (125 ml/4 fl oz) water

Garnishes :
garlic chives,thickly chopped 
fresh coriander leaves 
unsalted roasted peanuts  

Preparation :

1- Using a large heavy knife or cleaver,
chop each piece of chicken into 2 pieces,
chopping straight through the bone.Wash
the chicken and pat dry with paper towels.

2- Heat the oil in large pan;add the 
garlic,ginger,lemon grass,chilli and 
curry powder,and cook over medium heat 
for 3 minutes ,stirring regularly .Add the
chicken,onion,sugar and salt,and toss 
gently.cover and cook for 8 minutes,until
the onion has softened,and then toss well
to coat the chicken pieces evenly with the 
curry mixture.cover and cook for 
15 minutes over low heat-the chicken 
will braise gently,producing its own
liquid.

pan and bring it to the boil,stirring
occasionally.Reduce the heat and 
simmer,uncovered,for 3 minutes or 
until chicken is very tender.Serve
