  2. Heat oil in a roomy wok and add ground ingredients. Cook over low heat until liquid is reduced and oil begins to separate. Pour in the coconut milk and continue cooking over medium heat until mixture is thick.
  3. Add chicken, salt and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until gravy is thick – about 20 minutes.
