My mom always said when I was young that should find myself an Indian girlfriend due to my love for curries but who are we to question love huh? Since my beloved better half is not... guess the obvious solution is for me to do the cooking. In fact she doesn't like curry very much, whoever said opposite attracts got it spot on right there.

Today's feature is a HOT one. Devil Curry is indeed spicy but sumptuously tasty from the Eurasian kitchen. Reminiscent of olden days in Melaka where foreigners and locals daily lives are mixed up while in search of riches around Strait of Malacca where the shipping routes from China to the west passes through. This recipe has been brought down from generations after generations just like the Curry Kapitan featured earlier. If you would like a milder version I suggest toning down on the chilli powder to your taste or double the amount if you want to give your mother-in-law a dinner she will never forget.

1/2 lb Chicken
4 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp Chilli PowderChilli Powder
