Curries are often served over rice, but this version is served like a stew with a side of naan bread for a hearty complete meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in flour and next 6 ingredients (through red pepper); sauté 1 minute. Add chicken, stock, carrot, and 1/2 cup water; bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Stir in peas and coconut milk; cover and cook 5 minutes.

Step 3

While curry cooks, brush naan evenly with remaining 1 teaspoon oil; bake at 400° for 8 minutes or until crispy. Cut each naan into 4 pieces.

Step 4

Spoon 1 3/4 cups curry into each of 4 shallow bowls; sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve each bowl with 2 naan quarters.

Decent Quick Curry

June 03, 2015
This a a decent recipe that doesn't take very long to make.  My kids prefer to eat vegetarian so I used vegetable stock and added potatoes to make it a bit more filling.  The flavor was good but if you don't like it really spicy you can reduce the amount of garam masala.  I made home made naan to go with it which was delicious.  

Nothing Special -- But Easy

June 09, 2015
Definitely quick and easy, but nothing to write home about.  I followed the recipe exactly and the result was bland and watery -- more of a soup than a curry.  Afterwards I added more crushed pepper, cumin and salt and it was acceptable.  I also cooked down the liquid, but that means there are fewer than 4 servings.  I'm sure there are better curry recipes out there.

slightly bland
