Azalina's Mint Chicken Curry
Azalina Eusope grew up in Malaysia, where spices were an integral part of her Mamak culture. Now she brings a taste of Penang to San Francisco. The bold flavors of her spicy mint curry remind her of home.
If you have a scale, you can measure the spices: .5 ounce star anise, .5 ounce cinnamon sticks, .5 ounce cardamom pods, and .25 ounce cloves. You may also use 2 teaspoons of ground dried turmeric in place of the root; if you do use fresh, be aware that it stains. Wear gloves!
