Caroline's Chicken curry
Chicken curry is a common delicacy in South Asia, Southeast Asia, as well as in the Caribbean (where it is usually referred to as “curry chicken”). A typical South Asian curry consists of chicken stewed in an onion and tomato-based sauce, flavored with ginger, garlic, mango chutney, tomato puree, chili peppers, and a variety of spices, often including turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, and so on. Outside South Asia, chicken curry is often made with a pre-made spice mixture known as curry powder.
