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.
