How to make Chicken Curry
Step 1: In a large pot, heat oil over medium-low heat. Once the oil is hot, add in the onions and minced garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes until the onions have softened and aromatic.
Step 2: Add the chicken to the pot and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes until slightly brown. Add in the curry powder and paste and continue to cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
Step 3: Pour in the coconut milk and allow to simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked.
Step 4: Depending on the consistency you are after, add water or chicken stock. Simmer for a bit longer until the sauce has thickened.
Step 5: Add in the brown sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice. Stir and season to taste.
Step 6: Serve over cooked rice and garnish with fresh cilantro.
After simmering, pour in water or chicken stock to thicken the consistency of the sauce. The thickness of the curry sauce is all up to you.
Simmer longer if needed to thicken the sauce.
