I  realized this  Kapitan  Chicken Curry is originated from Penang only when many photos of the dish  posted on the Malaysian Food Fest facebook event  for the Penang month.  Prepared the dish earlier but did not make it to the blog  due to  my lousy photography.

With just a few day left before waive bye bye to June 2013, managed to dished out to mouth watering dish for this facebook event initiated by Wendy of Table for 2.... or more.

 Patient is need to cook the dish as the pounded ingredients need to cook under low fire and keep stirring till oil appeared.
