Chicken Curry Recipe

This is the best chicken curry recipe I have tried and tested, in my own opinion. We always enjoy this chicken curry on special occasions, that is how good it is. This is the first recipe that comes to mind whenever my wife, or I, celebrate our birthdays. My mother turned 80 years old this year, and guess what she asked for? Of course, you guessed it, chicken curry. My chicken curry recipe.


We grew up in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, and had many Indian friends. What good and great people they are. It takes time to win someone's confidence, especially asking someone to share a sacred recipe. I guess my mom asked for this recipe from one of her many Indian friends. Being a great cook herself, she adopted the recipe to suit our enjoyment. it works and always has.


This chicken curry recipe is so good, my wife, who is a professional chef, still uses it to impress International guests, arriving and eating at the guesthouse where she works. The guests always compliment my wife after eating this chicken curry.


It is also quite easy to prepare this chicken curry recipe, even I can do it and I am not a professional chef. This recipe is well known in our family and floats around in most homes across the country.


We hope you enjoy making this chicken curry recipe and we invite you to share your thoughts and tell us what you think of it. Thanks, and enjoy!


Eds note: This is a basic chicken curry recipe. You can add vegetables like carrots and potatoes to your liking.
