There have been countless requests for curry chicken. There are many versions of curries due to the usage of different types of ingredients. No two bowls of curry chicken taste the same! However, the taste is generally rich and spicy. The gravy should be moderately thick enough and not diluted.
The best type of curry should be rich in coconut milk and spices. However, the coconut milk should not be overpowering that it masks the taste of the spices. Marinating the meat in curry paste before cooking enhances the taste of the meat itself. You can skip this step if you do not want to do so as it is optional.
This is my take on a simple bowl of curry chicken. You will not be disappointed!
