I’m not sure why I’ve NEVER posted a proper curry recipe on my blog in 5+ years… but that ends now! Here’s my gluten free spiced coconut chicken curry recipe – it’s low FODMAP and dairy free.
My gluten free spiced coconut chicken curry recipe is basically everything you’d want in a curry – creamy, warming with a subtle spiciness. Sound good to you? You’ve come to the right place!
I guess when it comes down to it, most curries are gluten free already, so there’s not a huge surge of hungry readers asking for them.
(yes I am that badly motivated that I need you guys to pester me for things all the time)
But yeah – I get so caught up in recreating gluten free versions of things I can’t eat, that sometimes I forget to celebrate and share food that’s naturally gluten free.
And no I’m not talking about fruit salad here!! I’m talking about my gluten free spiced coconut chicken curry recipe!
But in saying that, making a curry that’s low FODMAP is no easy task. Like… it’s an actual mission.
(ok yes, you can skip this bit if you don’t need to be on the low FODMAP diet)
But I’m pretty sure that garlic and onion are a staple in the base of any authentic curry. So how on Earth do you get around that?!
Well, a little asafoetida is a godsend when it comes to adding that little pang of onion-like flavour without any onion required.
Then, chopping fresh chives on top only further helps to bring that onion flavour to the party too.
Lastly, a glug of garlic-infused olive oil is my final secret weapon in the war on FODMAPs. Honestly, nobody would EVER be able to tell that this was low FODMAP and that’s the best compliment I could ever give this recipe!
I guess if I had to compare this curry to something you’d order at an Indian restaurant, I’d say it’s somewhere between a korma and a creamy masala-style curry.
I often find a korma to be a little too rich for me but I absolutely love the subtle spice and creamy coconut notes.
So I took what I loved about a korma and gave it a little more heat a little bit less of a thick consistency and here we are!

My Gluten Free Spiced Coconut Chicken Curry Recipe (low FODMAP + dairy free)
Here's my gluten free spiced coconut chicken curry recipe - the perfect warming, lightly spiced and creamy dish! It's low FODMAP and dairy free too.
- 2 tbsp curry powder (ensure it is low FODMAP - I have a recipe on the blog or there are some shop bought ones)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp sugar (optional - I use caster sugar)
- 1/2 tsp asafoetida
- 1 bay leaf
- 2-3 tbsp garlic infused olive oil
- 2 chicken breasts, chopped
- 175 ml coconut milk (regular or light work)
- 250 ml coconut yoghurt
- 1 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1-2 handfuls of spinach
- handful of fresh chives, chopped
Add your garlic infused oil to your pan, heat up and then add all your spices and sugar for about 1 minute, keep stirring. (Spices: curry powder, cinnamon, paprika, ground ginger, asafoetida).
Next add your chicken, followed by your coconut milk, coconut yoghurt, tomato puree and bay leaf. Stir and then simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add your spinach and lemon juice. Cook until the spinach has wilted down.
Remove your bay leaf and its ready to eat. Sprinkle of some fresh chives and some coconut or almond flakes if you like! Serve up with rice and any other sides you fancy. Enjoy!
A safe serving size for the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet is third of this entire recipe. (It serves 3 anyway!)
