Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Spinach Tomato Salad

['1 1/2 cups buttermilk', '3 tablespoons curry powder', '3 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided', '1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper', '3 whole chicken legs, cut into leg and thigh pieces', '6 chicken breast halves with skin and ribs', '1 1/2 cups all purpose flour', '2 teaspoons chili powder', '1 1/2 pounds cherry tomatoes, halved', '1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil', '2 tablespoons minced shallot', '4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar', '3 cups (about) canola oil', '12 cups baby spinach leaves']

Mix buttermilk, curry powder, 3 teaspoons salt, and pepper in large bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover; chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
Remove chicken from refrigerator. Line 2 baking sheets with paper towels. Mix flour, chili powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in shallow dish. Mix tomatoes and next 3 ingredients in another large bowl.
Add enough canola oil to 12-inch skillet to reach depth of 1/2 inch. Heat over medium-high heat to 375°F. Remove 6 chicken pieces from buttermilk mixture. Dip in flour mixture and turn to coat; shake off excess. Add chicken, skin side down, to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook until brown, about 12 minutes. Turn chicken over. Cook uncovered until cooked through, about 5 minutes for breasts and 10 minutes for legs and thighs; transfer to paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken. (Salad and chicken can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)
Add spinach to tomato salad; season with salt and pepper. Divide salad among plates; top with chicken.
