Indian Chicken Curry

I absolutely love curry and I thought this turned out great! It was too hot for mom (of course). Dad and Isaac even thought it was a bit too spicy. I only got one word for them: "weaksauce!" :) Well I loved this, so give it a try and enjoy.

Indian Chicken Curry

6 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
6 Tablespoons curry powder
1 Tablespoon garam masala (optional)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons paprika
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
4 skinless/boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups plain yogurt
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until lightly browned. Stir in garlic, curry powder, garam masala, cinnamon, paprika, bay leaves, ginger, sugar, and salt. Continue stirring for two minutes. Add chicken pieces, tomato paste, yogurt, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Remove bay leaves and stir in lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Simmer 5 minutes. Eat over rice. (I cook brown rice seasoned with cumin, salt, pepper, garlic, and basil.) Serves 6.
