Here’s what makes this curry unique:

  • Spice blend: Unlike curries from other regions that use garam masala, Kerala chicken curry features a distinct “Kerala masala” blend. This blend typically includes black peppercorns, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, and fennel seeds. The generous use of black peppercorns gives the curry a distinct warming heat.
  • Coconut magic: Freshly grated coconut or coconut milk is a staple ingredient in Kerala cuisine, and it plays a starring role in this curry. It adds a creamy richness, subtle sweetness, and a unique depth of flavor.
  • Tangy twist: Tamarind adds a pleasant tanginess that balances the richness of the coconut and spices. This sweet-and-sour interplay is a hallmark of Kerala cooking.
  • Curry leaves: The aroma of curry leaves is unmistakable in Kerala cuisine. They are fried in oil at the beginning of the cooking process, releasing their fragrant oils and infusing the curry with their unique flavor.

The resulting curry is a beautiful balance of spice, creaminess, tanginess, and aroma. It can be enjoyed with various accompaniments, including:

  • Appam: Soft, fermented rice pancakes with a slightly lacy texture.
  • Idiyappam: Steamed rice noodles made from a thick rice flour batter.
  • Parotta: Flaky, layered flatbreads made with wheat flour.
  • Rice: Steamed rice is a classic pairing for any Kerala curry.

No matter how you choose to enjoy it, Kerala chicken curry is a culinary journey that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more.
