Lower the heat, and let it simmer with the lid closed, for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt to taste. The chicken should be completely cooked by this point. Taste the curry and season to taste if needed. You can add the rest of the sugar or more salt, or vinegar to your taste. Remember that curries can be adjusted to your taste! If the chicken curry gravy is too thin, or there's too much of it, uncover and simmer the curry for a further 10 minutes or longer.
This step is optional, but it will allow the water to evaporate and the gravy to thicken. If you like an extra spicy curry, you can add up to 2 tsp of cayenne pepper. You should be able to find regular chili powder at any Asian grocery store. If you're not adding coconut milk, this chicken curry will be spicier.
The coconut milk softens the heat. NOTE 3 - if you want the curry to have a thicker gravy, you can reduce the amount of liquid by half. NOTE 4 - The sugar is added to balance out the spices, and bring out the saltiness of the curry. If you're using a different curry powder, or you're making curry for the first time, add only half of the sugar initially, and then add the rest of the sugar, if you feel like you need it at the end.

First Name. Email Address:. Absolutely beautiful curry.. So glad you liked the chicken curry Susie! This curry was so good! I will definitely be cooking again.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can taste and adjust the flavors to your taste. Hope that helps!

A bit spicy for my kids but my hubby and I loved it. I might try the spice mix with less pepper next time. Thanks for sharing! That was an amazing curry.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. Hi James! Thank you for letting me know! Sometimes I let them color slightly too, but never let them burn as they will add a burnt taste to the final curry then. I hope that helps! Hi Dini, just finished cooking your Sri Lankan chicken curry using your curry powder recipe. It was very quick and easy to make and tastes great. Thank you so much for letting me know Gary! So glad you liked the chicken curry. Hope you enjoy any other recipes you try too! Would brown work? Hi Curran Brown or black mustard seeds will work They are more or less the same spice.
You can serve the curry with Basmati rice, or roti!
Like this beetroot curry , or mango curry , apple curry or for a creamier curry — cashew curry. Some fried papadums on the side is the perfect accompaniment too! This was my first ever crack at making any Indian dish. It worked out so well, the recipe was super yummy and easy to follow. This will be a go to meal now!
Hi Yvette, thank you so much for letting me know! Tried your Sri Lankan Chicken Curry yesterday. Was amazing, liked by everyone. I did your roasted curry powder and used that. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. This recipe was fantastic! Thanks so much for letting me know! Lovely curry. Sort order. This huge, colourful book is packed with recipes.
I can see why the editors put this at the back of the book, but it will really walk you through all the basics — from all the spices used and what they look like to how to prepare chillies and what you will need in your store cupboard. Once you have read this, I am sure that even the most novice cook will feel prepared to try a few recipes and there are some wonderful recipes to choose from. The photography is mouth watering and both Dave Myers and Si King are so exuberant and enthusiastic that you know from first flicking through the pages that this is not a book which will sit on the shelf.
It is a book you will be cooking from — a lot. Mar 07, Cara rated it it was amazing Shelves: cookery , bought-new , hard-cover. Excellent book!

Its so good and I've spent months reading and trying out new recipes. Gone are the days of take out curries or opening a jar.

If you like cooking I'd say this is a must. Aug 08, Orinoco Womble tidy bag and all rated it it was ok Shelves: cookery. I love watching the Hairy Bikers. Unlike some TV chefs, they actually tell you quantities etc while they're working, and the camera shows more of the food being prepared than the cooks striking poses and gurning for the camera.
Add to that good food and good humour, and you've got quite a combination. I bought their Diet cookbook and enjoyed all the recipes I prepared from it quite a few so when I read the magic word, "curry"--I was away. It's a beautiful book with a wealth of information and r I love watching the Hairy Bikers. It's a beautiful book with a wealth of information and recipes, however be warned: many of the recipes are complex and require a lot of steps and pre-preparation.
Not everyone in the world owns a food processor; if you have one, it will be easier. There are a lot of ingredients that people who don't live near large Asian supermarkets may have trouble finding. And to be quite honest, I don't see the point of starting a recipe with commercial curry paste and then adding a bunch more ingredients, most of which are already in the paste. I don't feel you have to make your own paste, but starting with a commercial one just seems like, why do you need a recipe?
But then I've happily prepared Thai curries using commercial paste and coconut milk.
Call me a philistine if you will, but there it is. The novice piano player experiences it when realising that you only need to learn four chords — E, B, C minor and A — to play almost all your favourite pop songs. Lou Reed thought you could narrow it down further. It happened to me for the first time when, shortly before my A-level physics exam, I realised that you could deduce the answers to any question from just five equations. And I had the same experience recently when being taught to make curry in a small kitchen in a house near Luton by Mamta Gupta , who was helping us develop a curry dish for Leon.
Mamta is a master of Indian home cooking and something of an internet phenomenon. She started a recipe blog in , encouraged by her daughters who wanted to use her recipes when they left home mamtaskitchen. But this treasure trove of sound advice soon found a wider audience — it has had more than 15m hits with more, interestingly, coming from India than from the UK. Principle 1 : Be generous with your spices. Spices not only bring flavour but texture to dishes.
Most supermarkets sell spices in misleadingly small containers. You can buy bigger packets from Asian supermarkets, which will encourage you to spoon in the spices with a freer hand. You can store them in the freezer to stop them going stale. Principle 2 : Decide how you are going to cook your onion, ginger, and garlic. This triumvirate provides the deep base flavour of most curries, equivalent to onion, carrot and celery in the French tradition.
NB: garlic is not essential. Some Indians eschew it completely on account of its pungency and it is often left out of food served at weddings to avoid offending guests.
