Maharajah Coconut Chicken Curry

Antonio over at Seasonality Spices sent me a free sample of his Maharajah Indian Curry Blend, so I whipped up some chicken curry to try it out. Fresh ginger and coconut milk combined with his awesome curry blend created a creamy, delicious curry that is not overly spicy. Feel free to add fresh or dried peppers of your choice if you want to bring the heat.


  • 1 Lb Chicken Breast
  • 1 Small onion
  • 1 Red pepper
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Maharajah Curry Blend
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 Can (15 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Small can of bamboo shoots
  • 1 Can (15 oz) coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch


  1. Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over med-high heat, add chicken.
  3. Cook chicken until all juices are gone and chicken starts to brown slightly, about 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently.
  4. Remove chicken and set aside for later.

5. Dice onion, pepper and carrots and add them to the skillet. If you don’t have a non-stick skillet you may want to add a drizzle of vegetable oil to the pan as well. Saute over med-high heat stirring frequently until the vegetables soften and the onions start to brown slightly, about 5 minutes.
6. Add the grated ginger and the curry powder. Stir and saute about 2 minutes.
7. Add the bamboo shoots and stir.

8. Add the Chopped cilantro and the cooked chicken and give everything another good stir.
9. In a small bowl whisk the Tbsp of cornstarch into the coconut milk. Add this to the skillet along with the can of tomatoes.
10. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes

You’re all set, just serve over rice for a delicious meal. I like mine with a nice piece of naan bread.

    1. Hi Gretchen, sorry about the slow response this comment was stuck in a filter. The Maharajah mix from Seasonality Spice is great, but the recipe will work with any good curry blend. These days most grocery stores will have at least one “curry” option with the spices. Let me know if you can’t find one and I’ll send you a recipe to make your own curry blend.
