    hedgiehog's Note:

    I learned how to make curry from a very good South African friend. Over time I have changed it up a bit to suit my taste. My SA friends actually love this when I make it. I serve it with curried daal and basmati rice. Don't forget to add chutney and sambals! Enjoy!

      Start with a hot pan with olive oil - add onion and saute for a few minutes. Add ginger paste, sriracha, garlic, curry powder, garam masala and cinnamon stick. Saute for a few minutes until you make sort of a paste.

      Add chicken and saute until chicken is no longer pink.
    3. 3
      Add potatoes, tomatoes, curry leaves, bay leaves and chicken stock - bring to a boil.

      Add more chicken stock if you like it thinner.

      The curry should thicken and have a rich deep golden colour.

      This was a a decent curry, if a bit bland. While I was cooking this, it smelled exactly like the great chicken curry from my neighborhood African restaurant, but by the time it was done it tasted completely different. I think it could use some more curry powder and garam masala, and it should taste perfect, though a bit untraditional.

      This was an excellent curry, thank you! I used a Roasted Garam Masala, my favourite, and a Cape Malay curry powder. We liked the potatoes in this, very typical :), I cut the chicken into bite size pieces, personal preference. Very good recipe, Hedgiehog, made and enjoyed for PAC Fall 2011, thank you!
