Ingredients

Curry Base

1
tablespoon vegetable oil
6
cups sliced yellow onions
2
tomatoes, sliced
2
cloves garlic
2
tablespoons roughly chopped, unpeeled gingerroot
2
teaspoons salt
1
tablespoon gluten-free curry powder
2
teaspoons paprika
2
teaspoons garam masala
1

1/2
cup canned reduced-fat (light) coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
1/3

Chicken

2
green bell peppers, cored and cut into large cubes

Directions

  • 1 In large, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onions and tomatoes; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions soften and start turning golden brown. Stir in garlic, gingerroot, salt, curry powder, paprika, garam masala and bay leaf. Cook about 5 minutes or until very fragrant and spices are beginning to brown. Stir in coconut milk, cashews and red bell pepper; simmer 5 minutes.
  • 2 Remove from heat; carefully add mixture to blender. Cover; carefully blend until very smooth. Return to Dutch oven; simmer over medium heat about 10 minutes or until thickened.
  • 3 While curry base is simmering, heat 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken pieces, and brown on all sides. Add chicken to simmering curry base, heating until cooked through. Return skillet to heat; cook green bell peppers in skillet until brown. Add to curry base. Serve immediately.
Tips  

Garam masala is a traditional spice blend very common in Indian cooking. Make your own for this dish by combining 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon coarsely cracked black pepper, 4 green cardamom pods, 1/4 teaspoon coriander seed and 1 whole clove. Add with other spices and blend well. Delicious!
