  • Summary

    Store-bought curry powder is brightened by fresh ginger and garlic in this 22-minute chicken dinner. Inspired by the Indian spiced-infused oil called tarka, the mustard-flecked cashew topping adds final dose of flavor and crunch.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs (about 4 breasts or 7 thighs), cut into 1" cubes
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons mild curry powder
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut or vegetable oil (plus 2 teaspoons; optional)
    • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk (preferably full-fat)
    • 1 (2 1/2") piece ginger, peeled
    • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1/4 cup raw cashews, chopped (optional)
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons yellow and/or black mustard seeds (optional)
    • 5 ounces baby spinach
    • Cilantro leaves with tender stems and cooked rice or naan (Indian flatbread; for serving)
