Happy Cooking with LG SolarDom: Chicken with pineapple curry

 Cooking makes me happy, especially easy cooking (with delicious result, hehe)
I think that you don't always have to use a lot of time and complicated process to make something delicious, simple thing can put a smile on your face too. This time for microwave menu, I cook Thai dish ^^ "Chicken curry". Someone may think that making curry is hard or you need a lot of process, but with microwave, you need only one bowl! If you cooking a lot with the microwave, a microwavable bowl with cover is good to have on hand, no need to use plastic warp all the time. 
I love to try different function on my LG SolarDom, but I still love to cook with simple microwave function too. With microwave, your chicken curry will be cooked in 15 minutes ^^ and I love the fact that it can be done on the counter. 
For the pineapple I use pineapple slices in syrup, if using fresh one, you may need to squeeze it to release some juice or it will be too much water than pineapple flesh. I have to note about the curry paste, each brands have different hotness and saltiness so you need more or less fish sauce depends on your taste and your curry paste. I love my curry a bit sweet so I use 1 tbsp of palm sugar and if you can't fine palm sugar brown sugar is a good substitute. Cooking really depends on how you like it, I just can't tell you exact amount of the seasoning, taste and adjust to your taste is recommended. 
Serve hot with cooked rice, and enjoy simple but delicious Thai curry ^^.
