Tasty Tomato Chicken Curry

Brad Nichols


I picked this basic Sri Lankan curry up from some friends of the family and adapted it to suit our tastes. An easy and delicious introduction to South Asian cuisine, this curry is not spicy, but bursting with flavors and easy enough that anyone can make it! If you prefer your curry spicy, simply add your favorite form of heat either during the cooking process or at the table. Cooks up great from frozen in the slow cooker or crock pot too. Enjoy!!
