Nonya Chicken Curry (Curry Kapitan )

On Sunday, 21st August 2011, is Cook and Share A Pot of Curry! day in Singapore. Its an unofficial event hosted by few singaporeans for the following objective

Objective of Event - to Cook Curry and Spread the love to all

This Curry Event was created to promote the "message" of Curry Cooking and let all natives and newly arrived immigrants understand the message of tolerance and appreciation of our beautiful multi-racial culture.

Thus, I hope that every Singapore Citizen / or true-blue natives and even Friends of Singapore can COOK a pot of curry all over the island on this date (21st Aug 2011 - Sunday) and let the aromas of curries permeate and waft through the whole nation :)
