Drool over this spicy chicken curry. It is a hot, fragrant and very quick to make Indian Coastal Chicken Curry. Once the onion and dry coconut gravy is ready, then making this curry takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Making the so-called Indian Red Curry Paste is quite time consuming and it’s also a tiring process. I generally make this paste on weekends and refrigerate it for future use. Inorder to make this spicy curry, I use the red curry paste, some chicken pieces and dry spices. That’s it…and the curry gets ready in 20 minutes.
In the following recipe, I have described the method of preparing the curry in a wok on a gas stove. However, if you are in a hurry then the same curry can be prepared in a pressure cooker. I prefer the wok method because it allows me to control the tenderness of the chicken pieces. In the pressure cooker, sometimes, the chicken pieces get overdone and the meat separates from the bones.
This curry tastes great with Indian Flat Bread (Bhakri). Having it with hot rotis or a steaming hot bowl of rice is a very enjoyable experience.
