Chicken in Spicy Coconut Curry and Awards
Who can resist an appam and chicken curry combination....I mean atleast my husband and I totally love the duet, you serve it to us morning, noon and night we would never ever complain. Also, today is the day I can rejoice, and be glad at the fact my blogger friends have passed me on these awards - I am on cloud nine ladies....
Chicken - 1kg cut into medium pieces
Coriander Powder -2tbs
Chilly Pwder - 1tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4tsp
Garam masala - 1/2tsp
Garlic paste - 1tsp
Onions - 2 medium finely sliced
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Curry leaves - 2 sprigs
Potatoes - 2 peeled, boiled and quartered.
Peas - 1/4cup
Green chillies - 2 finely chopped
Ginger - 1tsp julienned
Coconut milk - 2cups (1/2 cup thick and 1 1/2 cup light)
Lemon juice - 1tsp
Salt to taste
Mix the masala powders and garlic paste and make it into a thick paste along with water. Heat oil into a large pan, splutter the mustard seeds and and then fry the curry leaves. Saute the onions, green chilly and ginger till nice and tender and then fry the masala for about three minutes. Pour in the light coconut milk, lemon juice and salt and bring to a boil. Then add the chicken and simmer for about 25minutes. When the chicken is almost done, add the potatoes, peas and thick coconut milk and simmer for about 5minutes. Do not allow the curry to boil. Serve hot with appams.
Once again thankyou Sarah Naveen from Vaazhayila and Maria from Maria's Menu for the awards. I'd like pass these on to Tina, Faiza Ali, Latha Biju, Divya Kudua, and Padhu.
