  2. Add the onion and peppers to the frying pan and cook till soft on a medium-low heat.
  3. Whilst the onion and peppers are frying, make up the curry sauce by putting the curry paste in a large bowl and adding 3 dessertspoons of the chicken stock to the paste. When blended, add the remaining stock and mix, then add the salt, sugar, curry powder, soy sauce, one of the garlic cloves and the coconut milk; whisk till smooth.

  6. With 30 minutes left to cook, add some cornflour mixed as per packet instructions and stir well, to thicken the sauce.

Beutiful curry, enjoyed by all will make again, but will reduce liquid quite a bit-17 Sep 2013

We all love this curry, especially made with yellow curry paste but red and green are nice too. *Vixster, mine is usually creamy once its thickened with cornflour, but looks like the pic above at the start of the cooking process.-01 May 2013

This is delicious. I cooked it in my crock pot and it really worked well. Also added some courgette and sweet potato about 2 hours in. Would highly recommend-09 Feb 2014

Thai curry is typically served with bread such as naan or roti, which is used to scoop up the sauces along with the meat and vegetables. Also, rice accompanies the dish and is usually served on the side so it doesn&rsquot get soggy. I prefer to serve this creamy coconut chicken curry over steamed rice with the intention of drowning the rice in the delicious sauce.

Below are some options for how to best serve your curry. You can choose to spoon the chicken curry over some of the sides or serve them as just sides.

Spicy Coconut Chicken Curry

  • 2 tbsp Cooking oil
  • 3 Boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup Canned of tomatoes

Spices

  • 3 tbsp Dried Fenugreek leaves, Kasoori Methi
  • 1 tbsp Coriander
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili
  • 1 tbsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 6 Garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 chili Birds eye chili
  • 1 tbsp Gram Masala
  • 1 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 bay leaves
  • 4 Green Cardamom
  • 2 Black Cardamom

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, divided
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • 1 (14 ounce) can light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon red Thai curry paste (see Tip)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, in batches if necessary, and cook, flipping once, until browned and cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Remove pan from heat. Whisk the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, coconut milk, brown sugar, curry paste and lime juice in the pan. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve the chicken with quinoa and the sauce, garnished with cilantro, if desired.

Tip: Red Thai curry paste's aromatic blend of lemongrass, ginger and chile peppers is in the middle of the road heat-wise--try green curry paste for more heat or yellow for less.
