Orange Chicken Curry

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Moni1624

This is a different take on chicken curry that I got from a friend... Even kids find this one absolutely scrumptious! Serve with basmati or jasmine rice.

We enjoyed the chicken very much.
I had to adapted the recipe to the ingredients I have at home. For this reason I used chicken legs!

I'm preparing very often curries without "curry powder" because I mix my spieces every time in different way.
For this recipe my curry powder was a mix of: garam masala, turmeric and little tandori masala.
I used water instead of broth, because there is already chicken in the dish, but I added the almonds.
I had to wait longer as expected to serve the dish. So I put this in the oven (very low heat) and I added little water. The dish had enough time to develop his taste and come out delicious, a 5 star recipe.
Every curry mix is different, maybe with another this will be only a 3 star recipe!
