I am, admittedly, a novice when it comes to Indian food. Curry scared me as I’d had it years ago and it tasted terrible and was so stupidly hot it was inedible. I sort of painted all curry with that same brush – and steered clear for years. Then I tried a coconut lime chicken recipe that had a tad of curry powder in it, and I realized that not all curry is hot, and some curry tastes amazing!
So – I got braver today and tried a Coconut Chicken Curry recipe that I modified a bit and made more to our taste. This turned out great! I served with steamed rice, toasted naan bread, shredded lettuce, fresh tomato, and sliced red onion. It was ah. mah. zing.
If you wanted to make this vegetarian, use water instead of broth/stock and double the potato. It would taste great. I had one chicken breast in the fridge already thawed so that’s what I put in here, but all potato would be pretty damn tasty as well!
If you feel the need – garnish with parsley or cilantro 🙂
