This Keto Coconut Chicken Curry is super easy to whip up and packed with all the curry flavor! Serve over cauliflower rice and enjoy a perfect weekday dinner!
Curry dishes are prevalent in so many international cuisines. This version is very Americanized but still has the familiar flavors we have come to love. While it pales in comparison to your local takeout (and I encourage you to patronize those places!) it's nice to be able to make a similar recipe at home sometimes. I serve mine with cauliflower rice for a lot less carbs!
What is coconut curry made of?
Coconut curry is traditionally made with coconut milk and spices such as curry powder, ginger, coriander, and turmeric. Then the bulk ingredients can be onion, bell pepper, garbanzo beans or lentils (if not eating keto), chicken, or lamb.
What makes the tastiest coconut curry?
In my opinion it's not what's in the curry as much as how it is prepared. I like to bloom the spices after adding them to the pan. This is done by just cooking them after they are added to the pan to bring out as much flavor as possible.
