Delicious Indian Chicken Curry Recipe with Coconut Milk
This is really probably my favourite authentic Indian chicken curry recipe of all time because it is so easy to make and so delicious.
Above all, you can decide yourself how spicy you want to make it.
In addition to this, you can make it in a single pan which saves the washing up. I use my trusted wok (or one of them) to make this dish.
I have even made it in a wok over a campfire in the past, as you can make it in a single pan.
Because it is so easy to prepare, I often make this when we have visitors. I have yet to find someone that does not like this authentic chicken curry recipe.
The healing qualities of Indian spices
This recipe literally saved my life a number of years ago. I had some weird condition that made my skin extremely sensitive to being touched.
It meant I could not wear shirts and had to strip off. The doctors were flummoxed.
I spent a week eating a very strong version of this spicy chicken curry recipe with lots of hot spicy chillies, and hey presto – the problem went away, never to return!
How this happened I do not know, but they say that spices used in Indian cooking, like turmeric and ginger both have powerful healing properties, especially for pain relief.
I use tumeric and ginger quite a lot in this hot chicken curry recipe. Who knows?!
It may be a coincidence, but I have much faith in the healing powers of spicy food, and the beauty of this authentic chicken curry is that you can make it as hot and fiery as you wish. If we have guests, I often make it in two woks – one mild version and one spicy version, so that people can choose which they prefer.
The basic version without using any chillies has a lovely mild taste, and is great for people that prefer a less spicy version.
Simple Ingredients for authentic Indian Curry recipe
The ingredients for this curry are very simple. Garlic and ginger, a few spices, some chicken and vegetables and coconut milk.
It is always a success, and the pan is nearly always emptied, however much I make.
If I am lucky enough to have any leftovers it freezes well and reheats very well in the microwave.
The coconut milk and the madras paste makes this dish so good. Really the taste is amazing!
It is also quite unusual to have a curry with no onions in the recipe, but it means my daughter has nothing to complain about!
I hope you enjoy this curry as much as we do. Let us know how you get on in the comments section below!
