In a heavy based saucepan large enough to hold chicken in a single layer, heat oil over medium heat. Add cardamom pods, star anise, chilies, cinnamon, cloves and curry leaves. Fry, stirring, for 2-3 minutes. Add 1/3 of the coconut milk mixture. Bring to the boil then add chicken. Turn to coat then cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining coconut milk mixture. Bring to a simmer then lower heat and cook gently, uncovered, for 50 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook for a further 10 minutes, stirring every minute. The chicken should be golden brown and most of the milk evaporated. Pour away oily residue. Increase heat to high. Add 3-4 tablespoon water and stir to deglaze pan. Serve chicken with Thai rice and sauce.
