Chicken Curry

My husband said this is the best Indian dish I've made. We had company over and we ate all of it. My girlfriend was a little skeptical to try it because she's never had curry before but she enjoyed it, at least I think she did because she had seconds. Even her picky 2 year old ate it. Now that's saying something.

The lighting in this picture is not very good. I used yellow saffron rice underneath the curry. It almost looks like scrambled eggs though.

My husband even ate it with his hands like he did when he lived in India. 

I got this recipe from Thegreatbalancingact

Crock Pot Chicken Curry: 

Cube and brown 4-6 chicken breasts in a pan.
Cube 2-4 medium sized potatoes, slice 2 small onions( I only used 1/2 of an onion and it was fine.), and add them to the slow cooker.( I would recommend adding the potatoes during the last 3-4 hours of cooking. They were a little too soft)
In a bowl, combine:
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp curry power
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp Kashmir chili powder (or cayenne)
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste ( I had combined all the ingredients in the bowl and when I got to the tomato paste, I turned my cupboards upside down and did not find any. So, I used 3 tablespoons of tomato sauce instead. I think it would taste great either way though.)

  1. I lived in India for two years so Iam very picky about my Indian dishes. This one had really good flavor and was mild enough anyone could enjoy it. Oh, and it tastes way better if you eat it with your hands.
