Indian Chicken Curry Recipe

I made this curry last night, and I thought it was so delicious I had to share! (and easy, and cheaper than buying the premade stuff!)


3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon paprika
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
salt to taste
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup coconut milk


Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until lightly browned. Stir in garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, paprika, bay leaf, ginger, sugar and salt. Continue stirring for 2 minutes. Add chicken pieces, tomato paste, yogurt, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove bay leaf.
Optional: add juice from 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and simmer 5 more minutes. (I didn't do this, and I thought it tasted great! The curry powder gave it a little bite, but if you like it spicier, I would definitely add the cayenne)

Let me know if you try it and what you think!
