I hope all is good and well with you. Here is a chicken curry recipe for my lovely readers who enjoy cooking. It might look quite intimidating but trust me it's not. So here it is.
1 medium sized chicken
5 potatoes (cut into halves)
1 tbs of tomato paste/puree
1 tbs of lime/lemon juice
4 tbs of coconut cream (makes the curry creamy and yummy)
2 small onions (or you can use one large one)
8 pulps of garlic
1inch of ginger
1 habernaro or 4 chilis (optional as it depends on your chili tolerance)
4 cups of water
Salt to taste
4 tbs of curry powder
2 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
8 curry leaves (I have the dried ones but if you have fresh ones even better)
1 handful of cashew nuts
1 tbs of dried coriander leave or fresh coriander (if you have)
Grind/chop the onions, garlic,ginger and chili and set aside.
Lightly fry the cashew nuts with some oil in a good sized pot. Set aside the cashew nuts for later use.
Using the same pot and oil, put in the spices and fry for a min on medium heat.
Now add the onions, garlic, ginger and chili and fry for another minute.
Add the curry powder and stir till all ingredients are mixed.
Add the chicken and potatoes and stir well. Add water and some salt.
Add the tomato puree/paste
Cover the pot and let the curry cook for about 15 -20mins (until the potatoes and chicken are cooked)
Add the tomatoes and coconut cream and let the curry to simmer for about another 5 minutes. Also remember to taste and add more salt if needed.
Now for the final touch, add the cashew nuts and coriander leaves. Stir will and turn of the heat. Chicken curry is ready to be served.
Finally serve the chicken curry with warm rice and cold cucumber salad.
Bon a petite!
