  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to your spice preference)

  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • Salt, to taste

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until they become soft and translucent.

  2. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pan. Sauté for another minute until fragrant.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric, and chili powder. Mix well to create a spice blend.

  5. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and cook until they are browned on all sides.

  6. Pour in the coconut milk and chicken broth. Stir well to combine the ingredients.

  7. Add the diced tomatoes and tomato paste to the pan. Stir again and bring the mixture to a simmer.

  8. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let the curry simmer for about 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  9. Stir in the garam masala and season with salt to taste. Adjust the seasoning and spice level according to your preference.

  10. Once the chicken curry is cooked and seasoned to your liking, remove it from the heat.

  11. Serve the chicken curry over cooked rice or with naan bread. Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
