Chicken curry with coconut milk / Kerala chicken curry / Thengapal chertha varutha kozhi kari / Chicken curry recipe with detailed instruction and step by step photos. Mostly i learned chicken recipes from my mom though she does not eat any non veg(including eggs) she makes the best chicken curry and chicken fry. You can see many non veg recipes in this blog because i make non veg not only during weekend sometimes during weekdays too. This chicken curry is one such dish i made during weekday for lunch to pair it with plain white rice. Coconut milk chicken curry has lots of flavor from freshly ground masala in this.

Actual recipe include potato in this but i did not add it and just made only with chicken. So if you like potatoes in chicken curry then go ahead and add 1 large potatoes cut into cubes. Kerala chicken recipe was shared to me by one of my friend. She makes good chicken curry so when i asked her for the recipe she happily shared this. Coconut chicken curry is best when served with hot rice but you can also serve it with idli, dosa and appam

Few tips to make Chicken curry

I had used coconut oil in the recipe but you can use any vegetable oil instead

Marination helps to tender the chicken so do not skip it

Coconut milk used here is thin. If using store bought readymade coconut milk then dilute it with water and then add it to the curry.
