Curried chicken day

As a member of the chicken curry lovers club, I am embarrassed that I didn't know the existence of the day my favourite dish is being celebrated. How could this be?! Honestly I'm blaming the entire nation for not making this day popular. I mean we should have a public holiday for this where everyone go to a restaurants to get curry chicken and some family restaurant broke a record for the most amount of curry chicken ever produce in a day. 

Be it the red curry or green curry, this dish is heaven with its rich spices and savory taste. Even though it's one of India's signatures dish, it's widespread and common in other part of the world too such as South East Asia and part of Carribean. Curry is also a special dish in UK where for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953 a special curry dish called Coronation Chicken is invented. To celebrate this special day, here's a recipe for a typical South East Asian curry chicken, just the way I like it. If you haven't tried curry before, you should totally head over to any restaurant that serve this delicacy, I promise you won't be disappointed! 

This is a recipe from Annielicious Food blog for curry chicken Southeast Asian style.
