Chicken Curry in Coconut Milk Easy Recipe

Fri, 13/Mar/20

I fell in love with curry from the first bite. I was lucky to try my first curry in a small Indian cuisine restaurant in Bangkok. Since then I am a huge fan of all kind of curry. My second lucky-curry moment was to cook it finally by myself  in Sri Lanka. Imagine how exciting it was to cook a dish your family is crazy about being yourself on the motherland of  it. All the ingredients was bought in the motherland’s supermarket, the utensils were made by the motherland’s industry, it was happened in the authentic kitchen of the authentic house, even a recipe I followed had been found on a Sri Lankian cooking site… it was not just “cooking” it was  “playing a role”.

This is an extremely easy recipe of curry chicken. You can cut the thighs into smaller pieces or use chicken breast, up to you. Just remember not to overload the saucepan. There should be only one layer of meat in it.

One more thing. Like a fresh meat leads to the delicious steak a right choice of curry powder leads to the magic world of Curry.

Ingredients You Need For Chicken Curry

  • 4 chicken thighs
  • ginger about 2 cm
  • garlic 6 gloves
  • one scotch bonner pepper
  • one t spoon curry powder
  • coconut milk a half cup
  • salt and black pepper
  • vegetable oil 2 tb spoons
  • 2-4 tb spoon water

Let’s cook it, shall we?

How To Cook Chicken Curry Step-by-step

Peel if needed and wash all the ingredients. Take off the chicken skin and cut of the fat if it is too much. Cut the garlic, scotch bonner and ginger in a rather small pieces. Then mix the curry with 2 or 3 or even 4 tb spoons of water. What we want is to  obtain kind of paste.

Preheat a saucepan on the medium flame. Let it be hot. Now add the oil into saucepan. As soon as the oil is hot toss the garlic, scotch bonner and ginger, turn the heat down and simmer for 3-5 minutes on low. The idea is to let the garlic, pepper and ginger to release their flavor.

Let it rest for 15 minutes or so before serve.
