Southern Indian Chicken Curry with Mustard Seeds

This dish was inspired by one of Madhur Jaffrey's lamb curries. Mustard seeds pop in the mouth with every bite. Though the sauce is spicy, the meat remains mild and tender.

Cook's Notes

Serve with raita, a cucumber-and-yogurt salad, to soothe the palate; buy pooris, unleavened Indian bread, from an ethnic grocery store, and fry briefly to puff them up before serving.
