~ Non-spicy Chicken Curry with Golden Sweet Potatoes ~

Ever since my little girl joined us at the dining table for meals at the age of one, I have stopped cooking spicy food. Whenever I crave for spicy food, I will just cook my own non-spicy version of chicken curry. As I had some sweet potatoes but not potatoes, which is the usual ingredients for chicken curry, I make do with what I had. So, we had Non-spicy Chicken Curry with Golden Sweet Potatoes for dinner last Sunday.

Store bought Chicken Curry are commonly offered with coconut milk added to it. For a healthier option, I chose to cook Chicken Curry at home without coconut milk. I replaced chilly and coconut milk with a simple stalk of lemongrass which in turn gives a magical aroma to the dish. The combination of Lemongrass with Golden Sweet Potatoes is pretty surprising. It gives a refreshing sweetness in taste and appetising fragrant. I can’t help finishing the gravy left in the pot.

I cooked my Chicken Curry with an AMC 20cm 3.0 liter pot and a 20cm Secuquick Softline lid on Navigenio, fully automatically. It took 3 minutes at Turbo setting which cooks in the range of 108°C to 118°C. There is no need to add any oil to this recipe. With the AMC Premium Cookware System, I cook fatless without having to tolerate the taste or worrying about ingredients sticking to any pot/pan unit.

Non-spicy Chicken Curry with Golden Sweet Potatoes Recipe (Serves 4) :

  3. When Audiotherm beeps indicating readiness for pan-frying, turn off both Navigenio & Audiotherm. Add garlic and shallots and stir-fry gently. Add marinated drumsticks.

Preheat 20cm 3.0 liter pot unit.


Audiotherm beeps when pot temperature reaches 50°C. Signage on the Audiotherm shows the “Meat” symbol and a negative “_” sign, which indicates a need to reduce heat level as the pot has reached the desired temperature.


Add garlic and shallots to brown into the preheated pot. No oil required. Then, add marinated drumsticks into the pot.


Next, add sweet potatoes and slitted lemon grass.


Add 100ml of water. I added plain water into the combi bowl I used to marinate the chicken drumsticks in order not to waste the seasoning left sticking to the bowl. *Trifty!*


Cover pot with 20cm Secuquick Softline lid. Turn on Navigenio on automatic mode, “A” and set Audiotherm on Turbo setting for 3 minutes.


When cooking is done, Audiotherm beeps and indicates 60°C, a sign of keeping warm function at the temperature.


Voila! Non-spicy Chicken Curry is done. Look at the gravy. Liquid does not evaporate. Hence, keeping the chicken moist and tasty.


Let’s take a closer look at this Non-spicy Chicken Curry with Sweet Potatoes. The chicken is tender & succulent while the sweet potatoes are soft & sweetly infused with the lemongrass fragrant. All ready to be served warm.
