Chicken Vadouvan Recipe

Vadouvan Curry is an Indian east coast curry inspired by French colonists.  The French who colonized the Pondicherry area of eastern India took a liking to the local flavours and made this version their own.  A larger-than-usual leaning towards dried onion and garlic, and the freshness of curry leaves, makes this blend mild and a little sweet..



2 tbspn oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 tabspn Vadouvan curry mix

Juice of 1 lemon or 1 tspn tamarind paste

600gms chicken breast or thighs, cubed

1 cup plain yoghurt

Coriander leaves to serve

Add sufficient water to just cover chicken

Add lemon juice or tamarind paste

Simmer for 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through
