One kilogram of chicken legs, one teaspoon of salt, two onions, 10-gram ginger, four garlic cloves, two bell peppers, six potatoes, 1\2 limes, Chopping board- knife, citrus press and fine grater
Remove the bones from the chicken and set them aside to be used later in the coconut chicken curry. Slice the chicken into portions and put it away in a bowl sprinkled with 1\2 of the salt. The onions should be finely diced, and the garlic and ginger should be minced. Cut off the central core and chop the bell peppers into slices after removing the ends. Potatoes should be peeled and roughly chopped. The lime should be zested and juiced, with the zest set aside for serving. Set aside all of the vegetables.
