This delicious Green Curry is a household favorite!! It uses minimal ingredients, is extremely easy to make and tastes spectacular!! Definitely a perfect weekend meal for the family!
If you’ve ever wanted to try a classic Indian curry but something other than the usual Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken, then this one is definitely for you!
You’ll most definitely find these ingredients in your local grocery store and it’ll be an absolute treat to have this! It’s best eaten with some fresh hot Naans, but the store-bought ones work great too!!
Hi again you guys!! So it’s almost mid-week and I can’t wait for the weekend to finally start! Arvin and I are nearing the end of our first semester studying Photography & Film-Making, and things are getting really hectic. Pretty much every day we’re flooded with assignments and projects, and of course our on-going blog posts!
But, despite everything, we feel super blessed. Malaysia is a beautiful country and it’s just great experiencing this end of Asia again after so long! For those that don’t know much about Malaysia, this country has three distinct races living together – Malays, Chinese and Indians. The infusion of different cultures is just beautiful! And the effect it has on the food here is just perfect!

So with that, comes loads of holidays too! (YAY US!) For each of these communities and all the different religions that exist here, there are separate holidays for everyone. So pretty much every month or every other month, we’re bombarded with loads of public holidays (which is always GREAT!!). Like last month, we had 1 week of Chinese New Year holidays. So there’s your Malaysia 101 for today! ?
So coming back to the recipe, this is another recipe that my mom makes all the time. I made this a few weeks back for Arvin for the first time, and he loved it! (DUH!) So I’m sure you guys will love it as well! The best part about it is that it’s super quick to make – we’re both always looking to post recipes for you guys that are easy as well as quick to make. Because, lets face it – we all never have enough time!
So here are chef tips for today!
Chef Tips ?
- Use a bit more yogurt to make the curry more sour, according to your preference.
- Adding garam masala is optional but we always add it! It really makes a huge difference. But if in case you don’t have it, don’t let it be a reason for you to not try this recipe!
- Coriander is the star in this recipe – and it makes the curry taste and look amazing! Unfortunately parsley can’t be used as a substitute – they’re both poles apart!
So here’s the recipe! ?
- 1 pound boneless chicken, cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon garlic paste
- 1 tablespoon ginger paste
- 1 teaspoon salt (or according to taste)
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon garam masala (optional - see notes)
- ½ cup fresh plain yogurt
- 1 bunch coriander
- 3-4 green chilies (depending on how spicy you want it to be)
- 2 tablespoon cooking oil
- In a blender, take chopped coriander, green chilies and 2 tablespoon of yogurt and blend into a smooth consistency. Add this to the remaining yogurt and mix. Set aside.
- In a saucepan, on medium heat, add cooking oil, garlic and ginger paste and cook for 30 seconds. Add the chicken to this and cook till the color of the chicken becomes white - indicating that it has cooked from the outside.
- Add salt, turmeric and garam masala at this stage and cook for 30 seconds more.
- Now immediately add the blended green yogurt mixture to the saucepan. Leave it to cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes or until the water evaporates and the curry becomes thick.
- Make sure, before taking the curry off the stove, that the chicken is tender and has cooked all the way through. If the chicken isn't tender yet, add a little more water and cook for 5 minutes more.
- Serve hot with Naan.
