- I am cooking a curry chicken.
- I am making a curry chicken.
Are the above sentences the same and correct?
- What are you doing?
- I'm making chicken curry.
- I'm cooking chicken curry for dinner.
With dishes like that, we usually put the main ingredient first, then the general name of the dish (beef curry, chicken stew, vegetable soup, turkey sandwiches).
Note: there is a dish called "Curried chicken" but in this case "curried" is an adjective and therefore precedes the noun. That would be the same for "grilled salmon", "boiled beef" etc.
