Simple chicken curry with coconut milk


Coconut milk is one of the healthiest food on earth. Coconut milk has become a highlight in south Indian cuisines as coconut is largely available there. Coconut milk is a good dairy free alternative which can be used in making many curry dishes. Chicken with coconut milk is a simple chicken curry recipe cooked in coconut milk. I'm using very less spices in this recipe. I'm using fresh coconut flesh to make coconut milk here.
