I got my first curry powder from an Indian lady which prompted me to start cooking curry. We are hooked. We love spicy food!
1 cinnamon stick
4 whole cloves
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 onion thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger
3 large chicken breasts or 6 boneless thighs
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp coriander
2 tsp turmeric
salt to taste
curry powder to taste
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 can coconut milk
1 cup water
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 jalapeno with seeds cut in half lengthwise
Fresh Cilantro chopped, use as much or as little as you like
Make your spice blend.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add your spiced blend and stir with a wooden spoon until cinnamon stick unfurls and the cloves pop. This doesnít take long.
Stir in onion and
saute for 3-4 minutes until soft.
Stir in garlic, ginger, chicken, cumin, coriander, turmeric, 1/2 tsp salt and yogurt. Let cook for 5-7 minutes. You will be able to smell the spices cooking.
Stir in coconut milk, water, brown sugar, jalapeno. Add salt to taste. Add your curry powder to taste. If you are new to this start with a small amount like a tsp and continue adding until you reach your desired level of spiciness.
Let simmer until chicken is cooked. About 20 minutes. Add your cilantro.
This is so warm and comforting!
