I love curry and chicken, so I decided to cook these drumsticks in the Massaman curry paste . Served it along with coconut rice and stir fry vegetables.


  • 8 chicken drumsticks or other chicken pieces, with skin on

  • 4 Tbsp Massaman curry paste

  • 2 bunches bok choy, bottom cut

  • 1 red onion, sliced

  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced

  • 1 400 ml tin coconut milk

  • 1 cup vegetable stock

  • 1 cup white Basmati rice, or what ever rice you have

  • flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  • Coat drumsticks with the Massaman curry paste. Cook in oven at 180C for 30 minutes, or when chicken is cooked.
  • In a medium pot add the vegetable stock, and 200 mls of the coconut milk. Bring rice to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, covered for 14 minutes. When cooked and liquid has reduced, leave in the pot for 5 minutes. then fluff up with a fork. Keep warm.
  • Cut vegetables and stirfry in a pan for 1-2 minutes. Add some stock to help with the cooking of the vegetables. When cooked serve. Serve on a plate with the coconut rice, stir fry vegetables and drumsticks.
