I bought this unknown dish from one of the stalls in a food fair in a mall.  I haven't had this dish before but it has gata (coconut milk) and  I can see some of the yummy coconut and chicken oil in the sauce...ooohh.

  • Put a pan over medium high heat.
  • When it gets hot, add cooking oil.
  • When oil is hot enough, put onions and ginger and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  • Add the chicken pieces, sprinkle some salt and ground balck pepper to season it and cook until slightly browned.
  • Pour in coconut milk, (reserved about 1/4 cup) add some water ( about 1/3 cup).
  • Then add the papaya, season with fish sauce (start with a tablespoon).
  • Cover pan and let it boil then lower the heat and allow the dish to simmer until chicken and papaya are cooked and there's little coconut milk left.
  • Add chili leaves and the remaining coconut milk, let cook for a minute more or until the leaves are wilted.
  • Have a taste to check if the seasoning is to your liking.
  • Is it good? Then you're done. Serve with rice..lots of rice! :)
