Chicken Curry


Chicken curry is made easy with tender chicken, spices, and coconut milk in a thick and spicy curry sauce. Curry chicken is a delectable dish that is best served with steamed rice.

My favorite food is chicken curry. Today I’m going to provide a recipe for homemade curry chicken.

This simple and delicious dish results in delicate, fall-off-the-bone chicken drenched in a creamy, rich coconut curry chicken sauce. It’s delicious!

Although chicken curry originated in India, it is now widespread across Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is also popular in England and the Caribbean.

While each recipe is unique, its fundamental tastes are nearly identical; it is prepared with spicy, creamy, and delectable coconut milk.

Today’s recipe is Chicken Curry Kapitan, a Malaysian “dry” curry. It’s a dry curry due to the thicker, less liquid curry sauce.

This recipe is a variation on an Indian chicken curry. Kapitan is the term used to refer to appointed Chinese leaders in Malaysia under Portuguese and Dutch colonialism. This recipe has a low-calorie count of 431 calories per serving.

  1. All Spice Paste components should be blended to an excellent paste.
