I love the flavors of ginger, garlic, and cinnamon… cooked together with coconut milk and tomatoes. Big bites of carrot, celery, and potato make this a hearty meal. This curry is so delicious. I like my curry rich and thick. This turned out just perfect!
Vegetarian? Substitute white mushroom halves for the chicken and use veggie broth instead of the chicken broth. If you don’t want/like mushrooms, just use some extra veggies like broccoli or snow peas.
