Kolhapur - a city in the south central part of India in the state of Maharashtra - is renowned for its spicy cuisine, and this delicious chicken curry is no exception. An integral part of the dish is the goda masala, a special blend of darkly toasted spices and coconut that creates a delicious savoury flavour. Each household in Kolhapur has its own secret blend with regards to which ingredients are used, proportions of the ingredients and the level of toasting.

This was a great curry , easy to make ,the smell when cooking was amazing and we really enjoyed the slightly different taste , as my partner does prefer milder curries we cut back on the chillies , only adding one , and served with a cucumber and tomato and onion raita and naan this was not far from being as good as our local take away .

We're really happy to hear how much you enjoyed making and eating this curry, John!


Made this with cauliflower for a vegan version, really delicious but even better next day when the flavours have been allowed to develop some more.

Everything always taste better the next day! We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed this flavourful curry.


The Spicery strikes again & hits the Bullseye. Minimum effort for maximum flavour. Different flavours in different parts of your mouth. As my Wife said “a multi dimensional tasting curry, that is better & tastier than any restaurant or take away she has tried , 5 ⭐️“

Thanks for your lovely review, Stephen - we're so pleased to hear how much you loved the complex flavours in this delicious curry!
