Make your own fresh and flavourful Coconut Chicken Curry for an easy weeknight dinner. Create a simple curry paste for your chicken with fragrant coriander, cumin, turmeric, cardamom, onion and garlic. As the reviews for this recipe suggest, it’s easy-peasy to add in some extra veg to this recipe – like aubergine, courgette or peppers – see what’s in season or choose what you know the kids’ll love. Once you’ve made your curry, we recommend sprinkling toasted almonds and coconut flakes over the top for a yummy crunchy topping. Then serve with your choice of rice or poppadoms (or for bigger appetites, why not have both?). Looking for more curry recipes? Look no further.
