Chicken Madras Curry with Chapati

Chicken Madras Curry with Chapati
If desired, garnish the curry with fried shallots and cashews, which add a crunchy texture to this dish.


  • 1/4 cup ghee or canola oil (optional)
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1/3 cup raw cashews, halved (optional)
  • 1 Tbs. ghee or canola oil
  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or
      thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 jar Maya Kaimal Madras curry sauce
  • Steamed rice for serving
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs for garnish
  • Chapati for serving (see related recipe at right)


In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the 1/4 cup ghee. Add the shallots and fry until golden and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots to a paper towellined plate. Add the cashews to the hot oil and fry until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Using the slotted spoon, transfer the cashews to the plate. Set aside.

In an Indian wok or large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the 1 Tbs. ghee. Add the chicken and sauté until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the Madras curry sauce and stir to coat the chicken. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

Serve the curry over steamed rice. Garnish with fried shallots, cashews and cilantro sprigs. Pass chapati alongside. Serves 4 to 6.
