Aromatic Chicken Rendang

A traditional Malay dish, Rendang is a specialized dry-ish curry that is made distinctive by adding dry-fried grated coconut towards the end of cooking time. It is made with chicken or beef (this takes an hour and a half at least to get tender) traditionally. You may experiment with ostrich, lamb, veal or duck, and make it as spicy as you like by varying the amount of chilli. Dried chillies can be purchased at Asian stores.
