In This Recipe
  1. Heat oil in large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and sear lightly on all sides, about 7 minutes.
  2. Stir in Masala Mama’s Coconut Curry Sauce*, coconut milk and red pepper flakes. Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. The sauce should have a nice pouring consistency similar to heavy cream. If the sauce is too thick, add stock or water 1-2 tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Adjust salt to taste, garnish with cilantro and serve with rice or naan.
