I love a curry, I love a takeaway curry and a homemade curry, I just enjoy eating them. I make a curry a few times a month for many reasons other than I could probably eat them everyday! A curry, especially if homemade is very nutritious for the body. From the protein and spices used, it is a meal that is a great source of vitamins and minerals and getting lots of nutrients into your body in one happy meal and very enjoyable dish.
We particularly like a curry in our house when we are not feeling well or need an immune system pick me up. This is because I like to use garlic, ginger and turmeric in my curry sauces and these are the super foods that help fight illnesses and diseases.
I have a few curry recipes that I like to use, most of the time I just throw it in and just go by taste (it’s the Turkish in me!)
This particular curry is one I wanted to share because it is perfect for the whole family to enjoy, it is a mild spicy curry and is a great meal to get all those nutrients into your little ones tummies.
Both my children love my homemade curries and like I said before, I sometimes just add other ingredients in, like aubergines, bell peppers or even prawns instead of chicken.
So here it is my easy Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry recipe.
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes

2tbsp Coconut Oil
