Red wine chicken curry is more Indian than you may think
Although wine is not used in many Indian curries, it is used often in Portuguese influenced Goan cuisine.
This is therefore a unique curry that will rarely be seen on British Indian restaurant menus but definitely worth a try.
I love cooking with wine. Contrary to popular belief, the quality of the wine used in cooking DOES make a difference. No need to go crazy but a good quality table wine is worth the investment.
In India, chicken is often cooked on the the bone in curries. This adds to the flavour of the dish. It may be a bit more difficult to eat bur it’s worth the extra effort.
I made this chicken curry quite a lot spicier than the ingredients show. I’ve been getting some criticism lately about curries being a bit too spicy. Just add the chilli in small amounts to ensure the end result is a zing and not a zap.
Tip: If you do add too much chilli to a recipe, add a little more yogurt. The yogurt is cooling and used often for that reason in Indian cookery.
