I am not going to lie, my chicken curry dish has a boatload of sour cream in it! Which is exactly how my mom made it for us growing up.  But if you wanted to make it less fattening, you could swap out the sour cream for greek yogurt, or for a non-dairy alternative, use light coconut milk. Growing up mom just used powdered ginger, which is fine, but I always love to get fresh ginger. It really ups the flavor. And as always you can adjust the spice level with the type of curry you use, we like it hot!  Don’t forget to make some rice to go with it… And enjoy one of my childhood favorites!
