1 onion, coarsely chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot

1 large jalapeno chili, stemmed and halved

zest of 1 lemon, about 1 tablespoon

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 (3 to 3 1/2 pound) chicken, cut into small serving pieces, skin removed

1 cup sliced carrots

Salt, to taste

1 1/2 teaspoons Hot Madras Sambar Curry Powder

1 (14-ounce) can unsweetened 'light' coconut milk

Fresh lemon juice, to taste
