COCONUT CHICKEN CURRY RECIPE
1 whole chicken (1.2kg) (cut into small equal pieces)
2 large onions (chopped)
5 garlic cloves (chopped)
20g root ginger (chopped)
5 teaspoons curry powder
4 large tomatoes (blended)
1 cup mixed coloured peppers (cut into large chunks)
Small bunch coriander
200ml coconut cream
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
In a suitable pot, cook the onion and ginger with little oil, over medium heat. Keep stirring to avoid cooking on one side.
As it starts to brown, add the chopped garlic and cook until it all starts to evenly brown. We add garlic later as it cooks faster and will burn before the onion and ginger get brown.
Add the curry powder just before the onion gets fully browned and allow to cook for 1 minute while stirring. If the pot is too hot, reduce/turn off the heat to avoid having the curry powder burnt.
If using chopped tomatoes, add and stir them into the onion mix. Add a little water and allow the tomatoes to start stewing. If using blended tomatoes, add and allow to simmer.
Add the raw chicken and salt at this stage and stir into the stew. Add little water then the coconut cream/milk and allow the chicken to simmer.
Cover and allow to cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes (when using broiler chicken). When the liquid from the largest piece of chicken comes out clear, the meat is cooked.
Add the peppers to cook for at least 4 minutes, stir into the stew as you taste, and adjust the seasoning.
Add a little more water if the stew is reduced, finish by adding chopped coriander
Serve hot with rice!
