Home cooked chicken curry without coconut milk

The other I tried a simple and healthier version of chicken curry without adding coconut milk. I used two pieces of meat from free ranged chicken and potatoes to cook my curry.

1) Blend 6-7 small red onions, some ginger, some lemongrass, 2-3 small chillies, 3-4
cloves of garlic & few pieces of curry leave into paste form.
2) Fried the blended paste until fragrant, I then add some chili powder, turmeric
powder and bit of meat masala powder.
3) Add the potatoes and tomatoes and some water to allow the potatoes to get cooked.
4) After the potatoes are done, and tomatoes had melted in the gravy, I add the
chicken. ( add water when needed )
Not to forget to add some sea salt for better taste.
p/s: Since I love the nice fragant of coriander leave, I add some for garnish as well!

That's it, a fuss free, healthier version of home cooked chicken curry without coconut milk. It's quite tasty even without coconut milk, indeed!

you should deep fried the potatoes and add it last.

SimpleGirl said...

foodbin, thanks for the advise. I thought I don't want so much oil, that's why didn't deep fried. I know it will be tastier ya!!

Looks really delish! Some people use plain yoghurt to substitute santan. Next time try that.
