Coconut milk gives this dish a creamy consistency and a mild but distinct flavor unlike that of coconut in its many sweetened incarnations.
- 8 chicken drumsticks (2 pounds total)
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups canned coconut milk (unsweetened)
- 1/4 cup toasted coconut
In a large skillet, brown the chicken in hot oil for about 8 minutes, turning to brown evenly. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, cook the onion for 5 minutes, or till tender but not brown. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the lemon peel, lemon juice and salt. Carefully stir in the coconut milk. Bring the mixture to a boil; return the chicken to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30-40 minutes, or till the chicken is tender and no pink remains, turning chicken once and stirring occasionally. Sprinkle toasted coconut over the chicken.
