This super easy and sumptuous South Indian style Chicken curry is made with Masala Mama’s amazing Coconut Curry. Made with a mustard seed ‘tadka’, a myriad of spices, tamarind paste and coconut milk – it’s tangy, creamy and divine! —MasalaMama

What You'll Need
  • 1 jar Masala Mama Coconut Curry Sauce https://food52.com/shop...
  • 2 tablespoons oil or ghee
  • pounds boneless, skinless, chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ¼ teaspoons red pepper flakes, more for additional heat (optional)
  • ¾ cups coconut milk, more for a creamier curry
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Salt and pepper
  • Mama's Perfect Basmati Rice, https://food52.com/recipes...
  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.
