This easy chicken sharabi curry recipe shows you how to make a delicious curry made with a kick of alcohol – in this case wine. This is an amazing curry made from spices, tomatoes and green chillies which combine to provide an altogether amazing fusion of flavours!
Folks today I’m bringing you this taste tantalising chicken sharabi curry.
Here I’ve adapted an original chicken sharabi recipe I learnt a few years ago when attending an Indian cookery class.
That particular recipe called for 8 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and was a bit more complicated to make……
In my recipe I’m using just 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and my blender to break down the onions.
This means the recipe still retains ALL the flavour of the original one, but not ALL the calories. It’s also simpler to make, but still as delicious!
This chicken sharabi is a medium spiced curry but you can vary the amount of green chilli you add to the recipe to suit your own spice tolerance / taste.
I’m well aware that chicken curry is a family favourite, but this isn’t just your ordinary chicken curry recipe. This one is really special and it’s Lady Lynne’s favourite too!
Indeed I no longer ask her what curry she wants for her “Sunday Curry” as I always get the same answer “Chicken Sharabi”. I’d end up making the same curry every Sunday!
She has a little song that goes along with this too. Whenever this is in the making there are choruses of “Chicken Sharabi, Chicken Sharabi”. That’s it. The lyrics are pretty simple if you want to learn them too. 😆
