Adding corn to curry chicken is actually a great way to stretch a dish. By also adding the dumplings, you’ve just created a delightful filling meal!

YIELD: 4 servings

PREP/COOO TIME: 40-45 mins

INGREDIENTS:

For chicken/corn:

  • 2 chicken breast/wing, cut into small pieces
  • 4 medium corn, cut into small pieces
  • 4 tbsp green seasoning
  • 1 tsp roasted geera
  • 2 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchar masala
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

To be used while cooking:

  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Hot pepper as you like
  • 2 pimentos, chopped
  • 3 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • Pinch of roasted geera
  • Green seasoning as you like
  • Water as needed
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

For dumplings:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup fine cornmeal
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Water as needed

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients listed below ‘For chicken’. Mix well. Set aside to marinate for as long as you like. You can also cook it immediately.
  2. Heat oil in a pot over low heat. Add onions, garlic, pepper and pimento. Cook until onions are tender.
  3. Add curry powder to the pot. Keep stirring while you toast the curry. Do this for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add 2-3 tbsp water or more if needed. Stir until the curry paste thickens. Add seasoned chicken and corn. Mix well to ensure all pieces are properly coated.
  5. Increase heat and cook until all the natural juices from the chicken has been reduced.
  6. Reduce heat, add coconut milk followed by enough water to cover the contents of the pot.
  7. Cook until meat and corn are almost cooked through.
  8. In the mean time, combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar and salt. Add water and knead into a smooth dough.
  9. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to the thickness you want your dumplings to be. Using a knife, cut into strips, then into smaller pieces.
  10. Add to the pot of curry. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the dumplings are properly cooked through.
  11. Once there is enough curry sauce to your liking, finish off by stirring in a pinch of roasted geera and green seasoning.
  12. Taste and adjust salt.
  13. Time to eat!

The corn was added with the chicken as it was already soft. If you want to be on the safe side, you can boil the corn for a few minutes prior to adding to the chicken.

This is one of those dishes that you can add as much coconut milk as you like. It’s a very rich dish with the more coconut milk added.
