Madras Curry with Lemon Raita

5/5 from 1 Customers

This is a classic Indian restaurant-style curry often made with chicken or lamb, although you can also use fish or prawns (just cook them for less time). The Madras curry originates from Madras (now called Chennai) in southern India and is characterised by its deep intense flavour and rich red colour which comes from a combination of dried whole and ground chillies.
