A curry from Goa


  • Heat some oil in a wok (or heavy-bottomed non-stick pan) and sauté the chicken until golden all over. Remove.
  • Add the garlic, onion, ginger and chilli to the wok, with a little fresh oil if needed, and sauté until softish, continually stirring.
  • Then add the curry paste and briefly stir fry to toast the spices.
  • Add the coconut cream with 1 cup stock, the tamarind puree, curry leaves and tomatoes. Stir well, return the chicken in one layer and gently cook for about 20 mins until the sauce is thick and fragrant, turning the chicken now and again and adding more stock if needed. Taste for seasoning.
  • Serve the curry on a bed of steamed rice with a sprinkling of coriander.
