Classic Chicken Curry
Many Indian Chicken curry sauce bases rely on tomatoes for sourness or tang, so are usually a staple in most Indian homes but because I didn’t have them in my fridge and really did not want to drive to our local shop, we used yoghurt with excellent results !
Intro to the Chicken Curry recipe
There are a couple of parts to this chicken curry recipe, firstly making the marinade for the chicken, then frying the marinaded chicken to seal in some flavor and provide some colour, and lastly finishing off cooking the chicken in a coconut broth combined with the remainder of the marinade and finally garnishing with some sizzled curry leaves and mustard seeds.
Despite the coconut, the gravy is light as I use low fat natural yoghurt and the initial marinade has no oil at all in it but you need to use oil to fry, try out alternative Valentine’s Day Dinner Dish ! Try it and tell me what you think by leaving me a comment in the box below thanks.
