Chicken in Green Chilly Curry

Chicken in green chilly curry

Every weekend, Sunday in particular, I try and cook¬†different kinds of curries with chicken or mutton mostly. Some recipes call for elaborate processes and I’m rarely drawn to such. That’s why I put together a few ingredients myself and make a curry base that goes well with meat. This time I did it with green chilly. A simple paste of the chillies, whole black pepper, coconut, cumin and coriander make for good curry base. All you need to do is chop some onions and mix it in with the chicken and let it all cook together.
