This dish comes as a very handy one for me as I always make this one when I feel low or am out of my thinking capacity to make anything at all…. Coconut milk makes everything perfect for me…. The taste and aroma of the coconut comes out so nicely from the rice and the curry that I bet you would always like to make this one ( always keep a pack or two of Coconut milk in your fridge ). Anywho… ( Barney style ) 😝😝😝 the chicken pieces were from KFC as I bought a big bucket and there were less people to have them so made a curry and gobbled up . Tummy happy me happy… So let’s move on with the recipe. Also to mention both these dishes will be a bit sweeter in version .
Hope u enjoy it.. Bon Appetit 😃😃😃
Chicken leg pieces -3/4 ( I used KFC wala. if u want to use normal one then just marinate them with salt ,pepper, ginger-garlic paste and lemon juice for an hour or so and fry them ).
Coconut milk – 2 Tetra packs (200ml)
Tomato paste – 100 gms
Rice -Basmati (around 2 cups )
Whole spices – 2 pods cardamom, 1 long stick cinnamon, 2 piece cloves , 2/3 bay leaves.
Baby corn – 3 long pieces and chopped them in quarter piece ( I used the canned baby corn)
Mixed herbs – oregano, Rosemary, thyme, basil
Chilli flakes -1/2 teaspoon
Red chilli -1 chopped
Garlic pods – 4/5 pieces chopped
Onions – 1 large chopped
Butter – Melted 4 spoons ( 2 spoons each for the curry and rice )
For the rice :
In deep pan or vessel , heat 2 spoon butter and 3/4 spoon of refined oil then add 2 teaspoon sugar . Let the sugar caramelized then add the whole spices (smash the cardamom pods a bit)in it and fry a second or two. Wash your rice properly then add it in the pan and fry for about 10 mins . Add salt as per your taste then add about 2 cup of water and 1 packet of coconut milk. Mix well and let it cook . Check from time to time. Add more water if u feel the rice is not cooked. Your end product will be sticky rice and the taste will be salty and sweet both. ( u can also add dry fruits if you want).
Heat oil in a wok with 1 teaspoo n sugar. Let the sugar caramelized then add the onions , garlic, chillies and them for about 10 mins or till the onions r translucent.Now add salt , pepper , mixed herbs , chilli flakes , corn , tomato puree and fry for about another 10 mins or till the raw taste of the tomato puree is gone. Pour about 2 cups of water and bring it to a boil , now add in the coconut milk . At this point your gravy will become thick. Add the chicken pieces and mix everything well and let it cook for about 15/20 mins . Voila your coconut milk chicken curry is done. Serve it with your rice and this is the best combination i ever had. Sitting at home , watching a movie and having this as a dinner is awesome. 😄😄 Hope u guys enjoy it .
