Chicken curry from Sri Lanka is a tasty dish with a little sting. You can make it strong or milder, by adjusting the amount of cayenne and chili.
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 onion in strips
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2.5 cm ginger, grated
6 – 7 curry leaves ev. 2 bay leaves
1 tbsp curry
1.5 tablespoons garam masala
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon paprika powder
900 g chicken in large cubes
2 green chilies, divided lengthwise, without seeds
3 tomatoes divided into cubes
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2.5 dl coconut milk
1 dl water
Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan and add onion, garlic, ginger and fry until the onion is soft.
Add curry, garam masala, cayenne, paprika, cinnamon, curry leaves (bay leaves) and mix together. Boil for a few minutes, stirring, until you start to smell spices.
Add in the chicken, chili, salt, tomatoes and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and bring to a boil while stirring. Boil for 10 minutes with the lid off, on medium-high heat. Stir frequently to make sure the chicken or spices don't burn.
Add coconut milk, water, vinegar, and bring the curry to a boil. If you want less sauce, add less water, but then it will also be stronger.
Lower the heat and simmer with the lid on for 15 – 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and possibly more sugar and vinegar.
