Easy Chicken Curry

A mouthwatering Chicken Curry must be the most comforting bowl of food on earth. Or any other bowl of curry for that matter.  It is always a good day for curry.  Most of the summer afternoons on the South African Highveld, the most magnificent thunderstorms grace our presence, giving life to earth in a matter of minutes.  This is the time most of us crave something like pancakes or “melkkos”.  But for me rain is the perfect partner for a curry and this recipe is stress-free, quick and flavoursome.

Easy Chicken Curry

It consists of a basic curry sauce, made with tinned tomatoes (don’t frown – it is amazing), coconut milk and spices and served with tender pieces of grilled chicken breast strips on brown basmati rice.  It can literally be whipped up in no time.  I found this the quickest no fuss curry recipe – EVER.

Easy Chicken Curry

If you have your own curry spices at home, you are kind of doing it right. However if you don’t own a pestle and mortar (or spices) a classic store bought curry powder would do just fine.

Here is my Beef Curry recipe and some of my favourite spices to make a nice flavoursome curry.

Easy Chicken Curry

Maybe it doesn’t sound like the conventional way of making curry.  But seriously, I don’t have time standing cooking up a curry for three hours. Only maybe if it is a Sunday, right? So there you go – Easy Chicken Curry in about 20 minutes. Dinner served!

Instructions
  1. First heat the olive oil in a medium sized saucepan and sauté the onion, garlic, ginger, chillies and powder (or spices) for a few minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes and stir. Transfer the sauce to a food processor and blend or pulse until smooth. Return to pot.
  3. Add the coconut milk and potatoes cover and cook on medium to low heat until the potatoes are soft – should be about 15 minutes.
  4. When the potatoes are soft you can crush two or three pieces in the pot to achieve your desired thickness for the sauce.
  5. For the chicken: heat the next bit of oil in a wok or grill pan and brown the chicken strips until done – while spicing them up as they go in the pan. Add the chicken to the sauce, season and serve with your choice of starch and fresh herbs.
