Afraid to try something new !? Don't be - make some Curry !This was my first time making Curry !
It turned out AMAZING - or so my 7yo and husband said lol .
I started with boneless skinless chicken breast I got on sale at Ralphs - 4 breasts. I picked up the veggies I needed too. Some in a can some fresh .
* Curry Spice
* Fresh Bell Peppers - I used 1 orangish red
* Fresh Mushrooms - I used 1 pack
* Fresh Onion - I used 1 medium sized white onion
* Fresh Yellow - I used 1
* Cilantro - 1/4 cup then chop
* Small yellow potatoes cut into small cubes
* 6 pieces of a garlic clove half cooked with the veggies and half with the chicken
* Canned Coconut Milk
Depends how many you are cooking for but this was enough for 4 and for lunch the next day for 3.
I chopped the chicken into little bite sized cubes so that they can be ready to mix with the veggies and they cook faster !
I mixed the fresh veggies so they can cook down to crisp but not mushy like when you see the onion almost clear - cook down in 2 cups of chicken stock (made or bought) and a table spoon of the curry powder seasoning. (2 for more spice 3 for even more spice - for my Mexican spicy loving hubs I also add chili powder to his portion!)
Meanwhile the chicken is cooking in a cup of water and the stock its making. When its almost done I add another cup of chicken stock and 2 table spoons of the Curry powder seasoning.
When both are almost completely done I add the veggies into the chicken and carefully mix the two together and turn down to low and let simmer .
At this time while it is simmering I added the coconut milk and keep adding up to a full can to my families taste.
We all loved it and it says a lot for my 7yo to try and love a new dish first time !
We paired it with saffron rice but white rice would be great too .
I only wish I had fresh Nan Bread for it !!!
Pics of what I used !
Try it out.. let me know what you think and what you added too !
