Sarawakian Local Delights : Chicken and Pineapple Curry
Curry is not an authentic ingredient of Sarawak cuisine as the spices are mainly from India or Indonesia. Sarawak is off the Spice Trade Route of the past.
This curry would be slightly sour, from the sour pineapples so some sugar might be added if desired.
the home grown free range chicken would also lend its sweetness and freshness to the dish.
It is an honour to be served home grown chicken dish in the longhouse because some of the best chickens are kept for cock fighting, or rituals and for breeding. Chickens when mature are often sold in the market for necessary cash for their children's education.
MANY of the longhouse women are very cash strapped especially when their husbands do not have steady jobs or fixed incomes. So they usually try to sell whatever they have from their farms in the once a week tamu near their longhouse.
May God bless them with financial stability.
