Transcript:Chicken Curry

Hi, my name is Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make curry chicken.

Chicken Curry Ingredients

For this recipe, you will need:
  • 1 pound chicken
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cloves
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 curry leaves
  • 2 teaspoos crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoons crushed ginger
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 3 cardamon pods
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons curry paste

Combine the Spices

Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add to it cloves, cardamon, cinnamon, star anise, and curry leaves. Fry the spices until cloves swell and the curry leaves are slightly burnt.

Next, add the onion, ginger, and garlic paste, and fry until onions brown. Add curry powder and turmeric powder, and fry until oil separates.

Cook the Chicken

Add your chopped chicken pieces, and mix well with the spices. When all the pieces are evenly coated, put a lid on your saucepan, turn the heat to low, and cook until the meat is done.

Serve the Curry Chicken

Take the lid off, add chopped tomatoes and creamed coconut. When you're ready to serve it, add chopped cilantro and mix it all together. Serve it warm.
