Curry is wonderful and so versatile – with different spice blends and using different meats. If your kids don’t like it too hot (or you like a lot of sauce) adding coconut milk is great. Delicious!

Only thing I’d try and do a bit differently for a “quick” curry is substitute the curry powder for curry leaves (simple for me as my parents grow them and always have tons, but they’re still fairly easy to buy) and fry off the ginger and other spices first without any tomatoes or water. This hugely changes the complexion of any curry. Even with basic store bought powders, as long as you fry them off in the chicken fat and ghee for a few minutes with the curry leaves it adds a much greater depth of flavour for zero investment… Read more »

Did it! Twas quite tasty. I did rounded teaspoons of the seasonings (split 1/2 spicy curry and 1/2 regular curry) and added some Himalayan salt.

Curry is great and a very healthy food. Tumeric (curcumin) is a strong natural anti-carcinogen, so don’t be shy when using it.

Personally, I prefer coconut milk to stock, which makes a more velvety sauce, and if you add a ripe banana along the way, it smooths out the flavors and gives a slightly sweet note that neutralizes the bitterness of the tumeric–so you can add even more!

And I leave the skin on the chicken, too and just throw in whole thighs and drumsticks–the skin is delicious when it soaks up the spices.

I like to make my curries with bone-in, skin on thighs… that way you get all the goodness from the bones as well. I usually cook them for longer (often in the slow cooker), and they will literally fall apart after the long slow cooking, so it is easy to fish the bones out.

I agree about the coconut milk – it goes in all of my curries, and will give you something slighlty remeniscent of a chicken tikka masala… especially if you make it with leftover BBQ chicken rather than the raw chicken thighs.

In order for turmeric to be an effective anti-carcinogen it needs activation in fat. That’s why you need to drop it in the hot oil for a few minutes before adding any more liquids or lemon juice.

Wow! I love chicken curry! It’s one of my favorite recipes. Anyway, I’m so interested with that book. I would like to get a copy. Thanks for sharing! πŸ˜‰

I love curries…..

My one gripe is that so many Paleo recipes are for 2 people,,,, seriously, not all paleo/primal people are just a couple with no kids who live together. Some of us have families as well!

And I know I could scale it up to feed my family of 6, but just once in a while, it would be nice to see recipes that recognize that sometimes we have to feed a crowd!

I have been adding more curry to my cooking as well. It’s fun to experiment with new seasonings and styles of cooking. That’s the best way to get variety without sacrificing quality of foods!

This is the first recipe I marked to try when I got my copy of the book!!! The primer part of the book is good and informative for a newcomer, but the recipe section is just wonderful! I am so glad I got it because I’ve marked a whole bunch more so go along with the chicken curry! I think this book and Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed are my two favorites cookbooks now.

Have just served this up for dinner and it was a big hit.

I used coconut cream instead of tomatoes and added lots of broccoli.

Really delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

Made this for dinner last night. Excellent! I didn’t have any coriander so I substituted fennel seed. Served it over zucchini noodles. Thanks so much for this!!

Am currently loving my home made curries. It’s really nice to know you can eat super tasty food that’s ridiculously healthy. We did one with similar base ingredients (minus the tomatoes) with cashew nuts, whacked them in a blender and made a Korma sauce using coconut milk. Even did one for the folks at the weekend and they might be converts. The thing that is harder to talk about is ghee and coconut oils because they always associated them with heart disease. We’ll get there… πŸ™‚
