Special equipment: a pressure cooker
For the chicken meatballs: Add the salt to the ground chicken.
To a food processor, add the coconut milk, curry paste, ginger, brown sugar, garlic, habanero, egg and brioche. Process until smooth.
Mix the bread-egg mixture into the ground chicken until combined and then form into large meatballs. Add the meatballs and vegetable oil to a pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Turn the meatballs over and place the top on the pressure cooker. Cook under pressure for 5 minutes.
For the yellow curry sauce: In a large saute pan over high heat, simmer the coconut milk with the peppers, curry paste, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and 1 cup hot water until thickened and the peppers are tender. When the desired consistency is reached, add the basil and cilantro but do not stir through.
For the pickled corn: Cut the kernels off the corn cobs and combine them in a bowl with the calamansi vinegar, brown sugar and 1/2 cup hot water. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes.
For the crunchy spaghetti squash: Drop the spaghetti squash cubes into a pot of boiling water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes, until the squash is just barely soft. Drain and shock with cold water to slow down carryover cooking. Drain again.
Scrape the squash flesh from the peel using your fingers; it should feel crunchy. Salt the flesh and let sit for 2 minutes before squeezing out the water (so the squash is even more crunchy).
For the toasted coconut: Fry some flaked coconut in a skillet with oil until golden brown, about 90 seconds. Drain on paper towels.
To plate: Spoon spaghetti squash in the center of a shallow entrée-size bowl. Top with a meatball, then ladle curry sauce over the meatball and scatter pickled corn and fried coconut over the plate.
