{recipe} Coconut Chicken Curry


This is by far my favorite curry recipe that I've made. My good friend gave me the recipe; she got it by watching one of her ethnic friends prepare it while they lived oversees. It is super good. I've made a few modifications so our family likes it even more. Try it, if you like curry, you'll like this dish!







Coconut Chicken Curry
(this recipe can easily be doubled)
1 medium onion
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. cardamon
2 tsp. cumin
5 tsp. salt
1 Anaheim or Pablano chili, sliced lengthwise (leave this out if you don't want the curry spicy)
3 chicken breasts (or the equivalent amount of steak), cut into chunks
3-4 large potatoes, cut into chunks
2-3 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
4 tsp. curry powder
2 cans coconut milk

Instructions:
Saute onion in coconut oil. Add cinnamon, chili powder, cloves, garlic, cardamon, cumin, sliced chili, and salt. Cook until it begins to smell good. Add meat and a splash of vinegar. Stir and cover. Cook until meat is cooked through. Add potato chunks. Cover and simmer on medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Add curry powder and coconut milk and simmer for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are soft. Serve over rice. 

Notes:
If you do not have coconut milk, you can also use fresh cream.

You can also add cream of coconut if you want a more coconut taste.

    1. It's the only meat that my whole family will agree on too! The only problem is that no one agrees on the preparation! I think this would go over well with everyone though.
