This healthier chicken curry makes for an easy, flavorful and fragrant meal. It is made with simple, on-hand fresh ingredients – onion, garlic, ginger, cauliflower, chopped tomatoes and a bunch of aromatic herbs and spices.

This creaminess of this easy chicken curry comes from the coconut milk. We swap out regular and calorie-rich coconut milk with light coconut milk.

To healthify this recipe further we go easy on the oil – an ingredient often used liberally in curries.

We also skip the sugar – another favorite. If you want to add sweetness, use honey instead. These few tweaks can slash the calorie content off a recipe by hundreds of calories.

This easy chicken curry makes for a richly flavorful and fragrant meal.
