I am a huge fan of Indian cuisine, obsessed about it. It is absolutely delicious, aromatic and healing. So when I come across a tasty recipe that is also easy to make at home I have to share it with as many people as possible like this chicken madras.
Chicken Madras is a hot curry, originating in the south of India, it is usually reddish orange in color with the garam masala being the dominant spice.
Garam masala is complex combination of many spices that include cardamom, coriander, fennel, fenugreek, nutmeg, cinnamon etc. It adds an incredible warmth and the depth of flavor to the curry thanks to all of the fragrant spices it is made out of.You can find garam masala in a spice isle in most grocery stores.
Another quintessential spice for the Madras curry is turmeric. Ground turmeric is a bright healing spice that adds a peppery-woody taste and a deep golden color to the curry.
This delicious chicken curry is fairly hot thanks to the hot chili powder. It adds a powerful heat wave to the dish but you can adjust the amount depending on how spicy you want chicken madras to be.
The curry is tomato paste and coconut milk based, with the sweetness of coconut milk offsetting the spiciness of the dish. The curry is creamy, silky smooth with the delicious sauce coating every bit of the chicken.
