Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry

Mild Coconut Curry Recipe

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.

  3. This is just making me drool! It looks so delicious, I’ll have to try it but with an alternative to tomatoes due to my allergy. The picture is amazing! I also love a good curry- my other half’s family is from Goa and they make the most amazing dishes. Enjoy!

      Oh no, one of my best friends is allergic to tomatoes so when I cook for her I just take out the tomatoes and add more of the other ingredients, in this case just add more coconut milk. Wow I bet the food they make tastes amazing xo
