Take your taste buds on a spin around the world with our quick Indian Curry in a Hurry. It's packed with flavor and since it's ready in less than 30 minutes, it's perfect for a super quick weeknight dinner.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and saute until golden. Stir in garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, paprika, salt, sugar, and ginger; continue stirring one minute. Add yogurt, coconut milk, and tomato paste, stirring until well combined.
  2. Add the chicken, stir, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and no pink remains.
  3. Stir in lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and peas; simmer 5 minutes, or until mixture is heated through.
Notes
  • Make sure you serve this with basmati rice or naan (Indian flatbread) so you don't miss any of the flavor-packed sauce -- yummy!
     
  • If you'd rather, you can substitute 1/4 teaspoon ground dried ginger for the fresh. And you can always add a bit more cayenne pepper if you like your curry with a  bit more kick!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Curry powder is actually a mix of several spices, and I haven't been able to find a brand I like a lot. Does anybody have a recipe for making your own authentic curry powder?

try searching - homemade spices curry

Because my husband does not like yogurt i omit and use a full can of coconut milk instead of 3/4 cup. It's just the 2 of us so i halve the other ingredients and still have enough for 1 lunch the next day.
