Hong Kong Style Chicken Curry Rice

There are so many types of curry in the world. Even the curry served in local Hong Kong cafes have a unique taste of its own and I truly miss it. This recipe creates a similar taste to the curry served at a Hong Kong chain restaurant called “Tai Hing” (太興). One of their signature dishes is, of course, curry!
