Indian style chicken curry includes a variety of aromatic spices simmered in a coconut milk-based sauce and served with basmati or other rice.

The spice called “curry powder” is not used by the Indians but it is a Western invention which does not reflect any specific food from the Indian subcontinent. 

The Indian spice used for curry is garam masala.   The aromas and flavors are a delight to the senses!

When I decided to make this curry, I did not have any coconut milk at the time, so I substituted it with Greek yoghurt, which turned out really good.

With only a few days to go before the world switches off for Earth Hour 2009, organisers are calling on the social media community to help this year’s campaign to reach out to one billion people around the world.

They are urging bloggers, podcasters, online video makers, mobile users and online social networkers to spread the word about the importance of turning our lights out for one hour at 8.30 pm on March 28.

Your curry is lovely, I was expecting to see a Greek dish, haha!

I love a good curry...a kind kind of heat and always packed with flavours. The dish transports exotic places.

Thanks everybody for the lovely comments.

Dee, it's kind of complicated as there are a lot of halva types in Greece. The one closer to the Indian one is that with semolina, which I hope to post soon and try and find some answers to your question.
