Chicken Curry (Chicken in Almond/Coconut Milk)




Chunks of Chicken Simmered in Almond/Coconut Milk

TIPS for this Recipe

Chicken

Some bones in the chicken taste better. However, if not comfortable with bones, get boneless meat.

Almond Vs. Coconut Milk

It is your preference. I found both options equally good.
