You'll be surprised how easy it is to make a tasty curry sauce from scratch
- STEP 1
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, then fry the onions gently for about 10 mins until softened and lightly golden. Add the spices and chicken, then fry for 2 mins, stirring to coat the meat.
- STEP 2
Dissolve the creamed coconut in 500ml boiling water, then pour into the pan and stir well. Season with salt, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins until the chicken is cooked and the sauce has thickened. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with basmati rice or naan bread.
Creamed coconut is very thick, like butter, and is sold in blocks wrapped in plastic. Store it in the fridge so it’s easier to cut a piece off when you need it or simply grate it directly into food.
