Chicken, Red Beans, and Cabbage Curry

Its starting to get cold outside and what's to eat during the cold months than some hot curry? Curry has been one of my favorite dishes to make since I gave it a try earlier this year. I just love how fast it can be made at home as well as how most of the spices needed are in most people's pantries and its not hard to get ahold of a good curry paste or powder. Curry also gives me more reason to keep cooking with the "Savory Spice Shop" brand's addictively delicious curry powder blends ever since a friend introduced me to their products(not an ad I promise). If you've had curry before you know that there's almost nothing as tasty as curried chicken, potatoes, beans/or lentils, greens, cabbage, and cauliflower. On a weekend where I was craving curry but couldn't decide between chicken curry or bean curry, I discovered that kidney bean curry was an Indian dish after googling for some ideas. I personally usually only use kidney beans in chili or minestrone soup but after combining the kidney beans with chicken, onions, and cabbage in curry, I was sold! If you also love Indian curry, curried chicken, and curried beans, you'll love this quick and mild curry!
