I will put the chicken in this thread just to round it off. I will marinate it in the rest of the turmeric solution & spice paste then roast it.I will get some shrimp paste just so I can see if that extra flavour is worth it. Its not that big a leap from a lot of the curry pastes I make ,its just this salam leaf & kencur that have me flummoxed.th_dunno-1[1].gif.I figure they are the distinctly Balinese ingredients. I dont want to get obsessive about it :biggrin:but I am curious now.

Mick, evening.....  I'm thinking that would be worth the effort to try on a turkey.....   crisp skin and a beautiful color also......

I got some shrimp paste but those other 2 are going to be tough .So I just combined everything I had left & rubbed chicken.


Cool colour scheme.

Home Internet misbehaving so have to use I pad so no photo. Chicken was really good,I put all the liquid in stuck in oven then got on with other stuff.It didn't crisp up,to wet but flavours were well integrated .Its almost a curry when you sit back & take stock of it.
Good dish for a slow cooker, no chopping just put the whole bird in. Pretty good rub to do birds for the smoker for people looking for Asian flavours. The shrimp paste I use isn't as confronting as some. I can see how you could do a really authentic curry rub that could go on a few things .
