When I am in a rush I make this chicken curry....quick doesn't mean it isn't a mouth watering meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken as for curry and put into a heavy saucepan.
  2. In an electric blender put the onions, garlic, ginger, lemon grass, chillies, galangal and 1/2 cup coconut milk and blend until puréed.
  3. Pour over chicken.
  4. Rinse blender jar with some of the remaining coconut milk and pour into saucepan.
  5. Add ground spices, salt and curry leaves and bring slowly to simmering point, stirring now and then.
  6. Simmer uncovered until chicken is tender and sauce thick and reduced.
  7. If chicken is so tender it starts to fall apart, remove from pan with slotted spoon and reduce the sauce on its own, then pour over the chicken and serve with rice and accompaniments.

Outstanding!! You're so right that quick need never mean bland - especially with this recipe :-) I only made a couple of little changes. I finely chopped the onions and fried them in a little oil first.Then added the dried coriander and fried it in for a couple of minutes to avoid the "raw" taste you sometimes get with it. Then added the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for about 25 minutes. Thanks KitchenManiac!
