Step by Step Method

Step 1

You will need a large (12") non-stick skillet with a lid for this recipe.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken pieces and brown on both sides.

Step 3

Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

Step 4

To the skillet add onions and garlic; reduce heat to medium.

Step 5

Cook and stir until onions begin to soften, about 3-4 minutes.

Step 6

Add ginger, curry powder and garam masala; mix well and cook for 30 seconds.

Step 7

Add coconut milk, tomato paste, brown sugar (if using) and salt; cook and stir until mixture is bubbly and well blended.

Step 8

Stir in yams.

Step 9

Return chicken pieces to skillet and spoon sauce over top.

Step 10

It won't look very pretty at this point but hang in there.

Step 11

Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 12

Stir in green peas and cook for 5 more minutes, just until peas are heated through.

Step 13

Sprinkle with cilantro and serve hot.

A wonderful curry which has already been added to my Curry Cook Book and a recipe I know will see to a good may recipe requests. It makes for great curry bowls served over Basmati or Jasmine rice, a real plus when cooking for one as it makes for great tasting meals. A real plus is it is very freezer friendly making for great meals in short order. A repeatable for sure.
