Durban with it's rich influence of Indian culture is apart from the Cape Malay community the most famous South African place when it comes down to traditional curries and a wide variety of sweet as well as spicy delicacies. I love chilis and enjoy using them in the food I prepare. They are a vital part of many curry recipes and due to the large variety of chilis available these days they can be used to produce tasty dishes that range from mild to extra hot. This Durban chicken curry recipe is really mild and can be enjoyed by all even people that are not into spicy food.

Please take note that there are a wide variety of chilies available these days and that there are enormous differences in their hotness. This is true even for chilies from the same variety. The very popular cayenne pepper for example ranges in hotness from the moderately hot 30000 units on the Scoville rating scale to a really hot 90000 units for the African birds eye version for example. So whenever you are working with hot chilies be cautious at first and only add more of them once you have tasted your curry and got an idea of the impact they are having.
Serve hot with steamed rice, or freshly baked naan or pita bread
