First things first - we toast a range of ground spices to make a dry rub with which we marinate diced, free-range chicken thighs. We then sear the chicken to brown, and, in the spiced oil left behind, cook down onions, garlic and chilli till soft. We add roasted peanuts, coconut milk, home-made chicken stock and kecap manis then blend to make a smooth sauce with a bit of texture, before adding the chicken back in and simmering till cooked. A final taste, and we balance the sauce with lime juice, more roasted peanuts and some crushed kaffir lime leaves.
