Add all the ingredients to the chicken except the potato and the carrot. Rub the seasoning into the chicken to coat it well. Leave the chicken to marinate, the longer the chicken is marinated, the more flavour is infused.


This curry chicken recipe is sometimes made with coconut milk. Coconut milk adds body and a rich flavour to the dish.

I usually add coconut milk when I know my side dish doesn’t contain coconut milk.
