What is Kip Kerrie?

Kip Kerrie, or curried chicken, is an easy meal that you often find served in the Netherlands. This dish combines tender chicken pieces with a flavourful simple curry sauce. It is served cold as a salad or warm and eaten with white boiled rice or in a sandwich.

The Dutchies love this meal. The origins of this dish are most probably due to the cultural exchange between the Netherlands and Indonesia. The Dutch colonial period in Indonesia, where the fusion of Indonesian spices and Dutch culinary practices gave rise to some unique and delicious recipes. Smoor Djawa is another favourite of ours.

You can recognise this meal by its vibrant yellow colour, achieved through the use of turmeric. But the curry spice often includes a mix of coriander, cumin, ginger, and garlic, creating an aromatic and savoury harmonious balance of flavours. The combination of curry and turmeric not only enhances the taste but also brings a touch of warmth and comfort to the dish.

In this recipe I used a yellow curry powder that was not very hot. So it is not a very spicy dish.

Kip Kerrie is versatile and you can enjoy it in various ways. Commonly you will find it served over boiled white rice, allowing the rice to soak up the tasty curry sauce. Some prefer to accompany it with bread, making it a flexible option for different tastes and preferences. Sometimes it may be served together with pieces of apple or pineapple included. Others may make it using coconut milk.
