Easy Chicken Curry Recipe

This chicken curry recipe is speedy and easy to cook but the result is a dish full of exciting flavors. It is also one of the first savoury dishes that mum has used cinnamon in but the outcome is definitely worth a repeat. Which in fact we did just a week later. This time we used 600g of tomatoes without any carrots. This turned out just a delicious.

  2. Heat the two tablespoons of coconut oil or other vegetable oil in the pan. Then add the two teaspoons of cumin seeds, the teaspoon of fennel seeds, the cinnamon stick and the teaspoon of chilli flakes, fry briefly, before stirring the onions, garlic, ginger and turmeric under.
  3. Now mix under the teaspoon of garam masala.
  4. When the onions are translucent, the cubed tomatoes follow into the pan. Let simmer for ten minutes or until the tomatoes have disintegrated.
  5. Lastly place the chicken cubes into the simmering mix and cover with sauce, let the chicken cubes cook in the sauce for about ten minutes.
  6. In the meantime chop the fresh coriander. Sprinkle the coriander over the chicken curry when it’s done.
