Chicken with Coconut Milk Curry
|2 tablespoons vegetable oil|
1 1/2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
3 pieces cinnamon stick - (1 1/2" ea)
10 whole cloves
8 whole cardamom pods
3 dried red chilies
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
8 chicken thighs - skinned
1 can coconut milk - (14 oz)
Salt - to taste
- Over high heat in a medium-sized heavy pot, heat the oil. Add the peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and red chilies. Stir until the cardamom darkens slightly. Add the ginger, give a few stirs and add the chicken and coconut milk.
- Salt very lightly. Add enough water to just cover the chicken pieces. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 40 minutes. The sauce will have thickened slightly. Season to taste. Try it with a squeeze of lime.
- Comments: This is really easy and really good. If you want to make a "meal in a pot", add some fresh green beans when the chicken is cooked and cook for 5 minutes or so until the beans are just tender. Adding a squeeze of lime is great.
