Goan Chicken Curry with Chunky Tomatoes

Goan Chicken Curry with Chunky Tomatoes

This chicken curry has the fragrance of coconut with the rich tanginess of tomato. The sauce has a gentle heat to it, but add sliced jalapeno for some extra fun! Enjoy it with fluffy steamed rice and an ice cold beer.


Serves 4


2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 medium red onion, halved and sliced ¼-inch thick lengthwise

3 plum tomatoes, quartered, lengthwise

1 serrano or jalapeño chili, cut into thin rings (optional)

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 jar Maya Kaimal Goan Coconut


Step 1
In a wide sauté pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes until nicely browned. Add the chicken and brown lightly on all sides. Add the tomatoes and chili slices and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes to start to break down the tomatoes.

Step 2
Add Goan Coconut, cook gently over low heat until the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve with basmati rice.
