Chili Peanut Chicken Curry (Chicken in a red chilli peanut sauce)

collage3 If you like Chicken and if you eat Chinese take out, you would have certainly tried ‘Kung pao’ chicken. Kung Pao chicken is a fiery chicken stir fry dish with peanuts which has red chillies for the heat. Just like any other chinese take-out it tastes great while piping hot and when you are really hungry ‘and not in the mood to cook’ 🙂 Usually hubby dear’s chicken curry is what we crave for and he usually appeases us by cooking his ‘special chicken curry’ every weekend. That reminds me that I need to note down his recipe next time he cooks it so I can post it! Anyways, because of hubby’s chicken curry being so tasty, I only rarely get a chance to cook chicken curry. But whenever I do end up making it, I always want to try something new. I absolutely love chicken in any form and since chicken lends itself to so many options, I am always inclined to try different things with it. Mostly I try changing the blend of spices a little bit etc. just so we end up with slightly different flavors in the chicken curry each time. This past week when I got a turn to make chicken curry, suddenly from nowhere ‘Kung pao chicken’ came to mind! Hmm…Red Chillies, Peanuts! Wow! I thought how about I incorporate both into the curry for a red hot chicken curry! My mouth started watering just thinking about it so i absolutely needed to give it a try! And as expected you could never go wrong with chicken curry anyway you cooked it but especially not when you grind red chillies and peanuts into a paste and incorporate into the curry! Finger licking spicy and delicious! YUM YUM just YUM! I am bringing this fiery Chicken curry to Fiesta Friday this week. Be sure to check all the wonderful recipes there! DSC_0135 DSC_0135

  1. It really is tough to go wrong with a chicken curry, isn’t it? This looks absolutely delicious. I love trying out new curry dishes as well, so I might have to give this a go the next time I see some Kashmiri chilies.

    • thanks Johanne! Yes it is indeed colorful and very flavorful too! I used Kashmiri red chillies and hence the vibrant color. But Kashmiri chillies are milder than other dry red chillies and hence this curry is not as hot as it looks! 🙂
