Chicken curry

First time I tried curry, I was invited to a dinner party at a friend’s house. We had a few dinner parties before, usually I was cooking or preparing something, this time it was my friend who did the cooking. It was probably the easiest curry recipe, involving just a few ingredients but lots of spices. I remember how spicy it was and flavoured so well, I wasn’t even ashamed to ask for more. From there curry ended up on my dinner table, and today I make it at least once a month trying out new recipes I didn’t try so far.

Interesting fact is that the wordΒ curryΒ was first used in England for leftover lamb flavoured with curry powder. Curry is actually a name for a large number of Indian dishes, seasoned with a variety of herbs and spices commonly used in Indian cuisine. Seems like today everyone has their own version of the recipe, but it doesn’t mean it is any less delicious.

This is my version of one of those dishes under the same name curry, it’s a bit European, but still as delicious. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    That’s a pretty good summation of “curries”. I’ll have to say curries have got to be my fav cuisine (but not so much in the summer time). But of course I’m biased because I was born in India. However, I left when I was 3 years old, but my parents continued to cook curries at home in the other countries we lived in. Reading through your ingredients, I have to say, it looks and sounds real yummy. Well done!

    Sounds delicious! Adding carb heavy veggies like potatoes in the spicy curry can help aleviate some of the spice between bites as they won’t absorb too much of the spice, and also make it a little heartier.
