I have a recipe for a curry chicken dinner - the chicken is cooked in a curry sauce, and there are also matchstick sliced carrots and dried cranberries in the sauce, and it is served over couscous which has been cooked in coconut milk. So there are sweet coconut flavors, tart cranberry flavors, and of course the curry.

I'm trying to come up with some good sides to put with this, so I can make a nice rounded meal for a family reunion type of situation. But I'm horrible with sides, and I can't think of anything so far. What would you suggest serving with it?

I would make a nice green salad full of veggies and sort of mirror some of the flavors of the curry dish in the salad. For example, putting shredded carrots in the salad, dried cranberries, using cranberry juice in the dressing.

And of course, naan or chapatis and cucumber raita.

I make a raita-like salad that is vary simple - just cucumbers, some plain yogurt, some lime or lemon juice and toasted cumin seeds. I love it with a sweeter curry, as it is quite tart.
