Today she discusses how to make Chicken coconut curry with shrimp!
This is a really easy and quick recipe you're definitely going to love. Chicken curry simmered in coconut milk with shrimp is one dish i love making especially when i need a quick fix for a sumptuous meal. i'm a real chicken lover while some members of the fam are practically tired of eating chicken. When i first thought about this meal i really wanted to make the recipe solely with shrimp but to be frank, it tasted bland and not well suited for my naija taste buds. So, i had to throw in a few chicken parts and Voila! the taste became impeccable. It's quite similar to Chicken curry and goes very well with rice, potato,yam and vegetables. Let's try this.

      I've made this so many times, and it tastes delicious, even though I usually use canned coconut milk and that makes it more creamier.
