Sri Lankan Style Chicken Red Curry

Jump to recipe

This is how I make my quick an easy chicken curry on a week night. I may not be able to find all the original spices or herbs all the time, so I will mention the substitutes.

If you can find, please use the following in it’s most authentic form or use the substitutes;
Curry leaves: Use fresh curry leaves. If not use dried version.
Coconut milk: Use freshly squeezed. If not use canned or powdered coconut milk
Curry powder: Sri Lankan curry powder is slightly different. So use that if you can find it. Otherwise, Indian curry powder works too.
Fenugreek seeds: Available online to purchase. They are mostly toasted, which is good. If they are raw, you can toast them lightly in a pan. Toasted seeds will last longer too and tastes way better. They are bitter when eaten on their own, but adds flavor to curries
