Recipe #4 - Curry in a hurry

Time for another recipe at last.

This quick chicken curry has a well rounded flavour and is a surprisingly tasty dish given the quick preparation time. I reduced the amount of coriander, as I find too much gives a very earthy flavour.

Get the following:

  • 400g chicken pieces
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 red capsicum, in strips
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1 tsp ginger

Do the following:

  1. Heat the butter in a frying pan, and fry the onions and garlic for a few minutes until brown.
  2. Add the chicken pieces and fry for about 5 minutes, adding a little oil to keep the pan from drying.
  3. Stir in all of the spices and fry for a further 2 minutes. Add the capsicum.
  4. Add about 100-150ml water and stir well. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Leave the lid off for the last 5 minutes to thicken the sauce up slightly, then serve.
