Coconut Chicken Curry

Coconut Chicken Curry

Who doesn’t love curry???!!!! I mean come on, you’ve got to love curry haven’t you?

Currently this is the UK’s number one dinner and if I’m having a takeaway this is top of the list. I know, I know takeaway curry isnt the same as making it yourself, full of artificial colours to make it look bright red or yellow. Why is that, I don’t know but after a couple of beers I don’t care.

Night out with the lads, down the boozer and then nip round for a chicken madras with a side of nan and poppadoms. Ten blokes desperately trying to balance mango chutney and onions on a poppadom as half of it drips down the chin inbetween a gulp of Cobra.

After about 30 seconds the twenty poppadoms have been demolished and onto the main. Ineviatively there is always someone who ordered a vindaloo or phall, wanting to blow their brains out. Dont get me wrong I’ve been there, struggling with heat and then not finishing the dish!

So with this in mind, when you’re cooking at home. Dont go over the top and make something you can actually taste. This little beauty goes down well with the kids as well, as its not hot. If you want to add a cheeky chilli then just whack it in there.
