IMG_1616  Ingredients for cooking Vietnamese Lemongrass chicken

This is the Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken (Ga Xao Sa ) ingredients that I prepared for my reunion dinner 2012.
There are many different version of the dish.
Some don't add in onion.
Some have no curry powder.

Ingredients of Vietnamese lemongrass paste:
6 stalks of lemongrass ( even use the upper part of lemongrass to make thicker paste as its upper part still has the aroma of lemongrass)

20-25 pieces dried chilli
50 ml water

1 tbsp curry powder( * not too much of curry powder or it will become chicken curry paste)
