  13. Thin coconut milk- 1.5 cups
  14. Thick coconut milk- 1/2 cup

  16. Oil- as required
  • Heat oil in a pan and add onion,green chilies,curry leaves.ginger and garlic.Saute until onion turns golden brown ,over a medium low flame.
  • Reduce the flame to low and add kashmiri chili powder,turmeric powder,coriander powder, garam masala powder and 1/4 cup water.Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes,stirring continuously until masala starts to leave the sides of the pan.
  • Add potato and mix well.Cook for a minute or two.
  • Add chicken pieces and cook  for few minutes..
  • Add thin coconut milk ,salt and mix well.Cover and cook till the chicken is done and gravy turns thick.
  • Add thick coconut milk and simmer for few minutes.Serve with appam ,chapathi or rice.
  • Adjust the spice level according to your taste.Kashmiri chili powder gives a nice red colour to the curry without being too spicy.I used about 1.5 tbsp of kashmiri chili powder.If you are using regular chili powder,use according to your spice level.
  • If you require more gravy add sufficient quantity of hot water  while adding the thin coconut milk to the curry.
