chicken curry

I do! I do!

Hahaha… all along I thought Chicken Curry is an Indian food.

I read, chicken curry definitely NOT an Indian food like what I used to know.  The curry powder is more of a generic term for a blend of different spices  primarily employed in Western culture to denote a wide variety of dishes originating in Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Thai or other Southern and Southeastern Asian cuisines according to Wikipedia.

Chicken curry is one of my husband’s favorite dishes, I usually cook it when I run out of ideas what to serve for the day.  I’m in expert level when cooking that dish, I can even have my eyes closed while cooking it.  😛

I use fresh coconut milk, I read that you can use yogurt too, instead of coconut milk, like how Indian cook it.  I have not tried using yogurt but will definitely experiment soon.
