This Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry is sooo delicious and can be made on your stove top in less than 30 minutes or in your pressure cooker.
This simple curry will impress even the pickiest of eaters. And will have your family thinking that you either a) ordered this from your local Indian restaurant or b) have taken some cooking lessons since this tastes so amazing!
Made with boneless chicken breast and simmered in a rich tomato, yogurt, coconut sauce that you’re sure love time and time again.
As you may know if you have been to my blog before, I LOVE Curry. So if you like curried foods as much as me then you are going to love this simple recipe too. Guaranteed! Plus it is a tad different than the average chicken curry recipes.
Feel free to add some cubed mini potatoes to this curry if you like, just omit the rice if you choose to do that. Either way this dish will turn out amazing!
The green seasoning you see on top of this dish is called “Kasoori Methi” which is basically dried fenugreek” leaves. It can be found in almost any international isle at your local grocery. See below!
And if you cannot find “dried fenugreek” leaves you can just omit it . However I find it adds an extra element to the dish that is really nice.
I have shared a few other curry recipes here on my blog, however this is the first one with coconut milk vs cream/milk. So if your lactose intolerant than this dish may be right up your ally.
Be sure to make some basmati rice to serve alongside or if you really want to make it extra special go ahead and make some homemade Naan Bread. I will share my favorite Naan bread recipe with you all on this blog very soon 🙂 so stay tuned.
Your family will not believe it’s being served straight from your kitchen, it’s that good. I used to order this type of dish at our local East Indian restaurant, however now I make it often at home.
If you end up giving it a try, do let me know in the comments below. I would love to know what you think 🙂
- Simmer on a low-medium heat for 30 minutes on the stovetop
