We’re headed to southeast Asia this Food of the World party, and down to Indonesia. As always, I came across a number of recipes I’d love to try, but life is too busy! So I went with the simplest dish I could find, and made it my own. Curry is a common food in Indonesian culture, and as it happens, a dish I’ve never actually made before. 
My mother in law had the chance to visit Cambodia recently, and sent me a number of their spices, like Lemongrass, Turmeric, saffron, and red and green curry’s to name a few. Along with the spices she also sent a Cambodian cookbook – but I’ll save that for another Food of the World party! Cambodia does sit close to Indonesia so I would venture to guess they use many of the same spices in their cuisine.  


Aren’t those fun! I can’t wait to give more of them a try. For this recipe, I wanted to keep it simple, with ingredients we had on hand, and a mild flavor for the kids. So we went with the green curry powder. I found it a little lacking in flavor, and wish I’d added another layer, or used coconut milk. Alas, maybe next time.

    1. I really scored in the mother in law department. She knows what I like and is always surprising me with something new. I have to admit, I really don't know what to do with most of the spices though.

  1. I did not know we get lemongrass powder and even green curry powder. Lemongrass powder could be very handy and a good spice to have in your pantry. I had to run to Chinatown to pick up some fresh lemongrass just for Food of the World. Your curry looks amazing.

  2. that is a treasure trove of spices – you lucky gal – but being part Indonesian, the type of curry flavor in Cambodia is closer to Thai food. Indonesian has a very different flavor and not as strong as curry paste but still a delicious dish no doubt!

  3. Wow, that is quite an amazing goodie bag. Didn't know lemong frass and green curry are available in powder form too. Your chicken & broccoli curry looks very flavorful.

  4. I am shimmering it down, I love this site. The instructions are easy to follow. I tasted the sauce and it is amazing. Thanks a million, I will be bookmarking this site.
