Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken:
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)
1 clove of garlic
4 medium size onions
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)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp fish sauce
* no salt is needed as fish sauce is salty enough
