Coconut Milk Chicken Curry (with a kick )

Coconut Milk Chicken Curry ( with a kick )


Just tried a new curry which there are many listed of online however I decided to give it a twist and think you’ll like it.


Chicken …….A lot of versions use chicken thighs and whilst I love chicken thighs I decided to use Chicken breast in my Version. So 2 large chicken breasts cut into large pieces.

  • 1 Teaspoon of Oil,Coconut,Sunflower or Virgin Olive oil.I used the Sunflower
  • 1 Desert Spoon of Garam Masala
  • 1 Desert Spoon of Hot Madras Powder ( If you don’t have any hot madras powder you could use normal and just add a teaspoon of Chilli powder.
  • 1 Teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 Small onion Finely chopped
  • 5 Garlic cloves finely grated
  • 1 Tablespoon of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 400ml can of Coconut Milk
  • 1 large potato cut into small pieces about 1cm cubed or thin slices .(As soon as you’ve cut into cubes place in a bowl of cold water so that the potato doesn’t turn color.
  • Small amount of water couple of table spoons
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh Cilantro (Corriander)

Cooking Method

Firstly read the ingredients and make sure you have these all ready to hand in whatever shape or form they are.e.g chopped or grated or cubed.

  • So with all your ingredients prepped heat the oil in a large deep pan or Wok on a medium heat.
  • Add the onion to the pan with the cumin seeds,garlic and cook for a minute.
  • Add the Hot Madras Powder , Garam Masala and mix well for another minute.
  • Add the coconut milk ,chopped tomatoes ,water and cilantro and mix well.
  • Add the chicken and salt to the pan .
  • Mix all the ingredients well then cover and leave on a low heat so that the curry simmers for about 30 minutes.
  • You may find that the curry seems quite watery if so you can either raise the heat for a while until the water evaporates or mix up some flour and water and add this to the curry to thicken it up.
  • Finally add the potatoes (or not ) to the curry and cook for a further 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
  • Now place in a serving dish and add some cilantro to garnish .
