Kenyan Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce
This dish talks about history. It talks about the long trading relations India shared with Coastal African countries, over the centuries. Though this dish is from an East African country, Kenya, the Indian influences are so pronounced that it feels like two countries are united. My sister who was settled in Kenya for years first told me about this dish. Then she even prepared it for me and I was amazed. This curry is so similar to the typical Chicken curry from South India. So here it is friends, Kuku Paka
for your Indian Kitchen.

Some recipes I found in different websites, use potatoes. In that case, add potatoes to the curry. The potatoes can be cooked ahead, cut into chunks and stirred into the curry toward the end.
Eliminate the hot chilies for a milder dish. Or substitute a chopped sweet bell pepper or you can deseed the chilies and use them.
