Heres a great recipe for chicken curry
Ingredients - 5 chicken legs, some frozen coconut, curry leaves, 5 green chillis, salt, garam masala, masala powder (ours is homemade from India- but you can buy chicken masala powder in the Indian store), ginger/garlic paste, 1 -2 tomato, 2 potatoes, whole garam masala, 1 onion.
1. First heat some canola oil then add the whole masala, ginger/garlic paste, onion, green chilli, curry leaves and coconut together. After a little while add a little tomato and masala powder and garam masala powder, coriander powder is also great, also a little salt. When the onions are cooked, blend mixture together to a paste adding water to make a thick paste. Then set aside to be used later.
2. heat more oil, then onions, ginger/garlic paste, curry leaves, green chilli and the chicken legs stir fry on high heat with masala powder till 1/2 cooked. Then add tomatoes and cubed 1/2 cooked potato. Simmer for 10 min.
3. After 10 min add the paste made in step one, turn down heat to 1, or very low and simmer for 30 min. This will ensure the chicken is cooked to perfection.
This dish is good served with steamed vegetables, sauteed Indian spinach(recipe to follow) or any Indian vegetable (check Bonne Nutrition for ideas!). Or also good with Dosa and Chapatti.
I have left over today so going to make spinach and chapatti yum yum
