Glutinous rice with curry chicken

I think glutinous rice and curry is one of the best combinations. We cooked curry quite often and actually it is quite simple. One could in these days buy different kinds of curry mixtures. We like those curry paste from Thailand, which we can get very easily here or those Indian curry powder. Chinese loves curry with coconut milk, we try to avoid it as it makes the curry too heavy. We normally just add water or milk. For us it is usual to put potatoes into curry, they absorbs the curry aroma and thicken the curry. Once my dear cooked curry for his German friends and they were quite shocked to see potatoes in curry. Potato is the main primary carbohydrate source besides the bread in Germany and it is normally ate separately. For the German, it is definite strange to see potatoes in a dish. At the end, they still said that it is a good combination. The glutinous rice is fried with mushrooms, dried shrimps and steamed. Oyster sauce, soya sauce, five spice powder, sesame oil, sugar, salt and pepper are added for flavoring.
