You read about my rave on Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food cook book here. It sounds weird, taking curry advice from a Brit-but seems that it is what one orders when one is in Britain (is it true?).
Armed with the recipe from Jamie Oliver, I made Chicken Tika and it was delicious! Never thought it can be that easy to make Indian curries at home. No more expensive and oily take aways!
I adapted his recipe by adding more veges and reduced the amount of chicken to make it a one pot dish. Add some microwave papadums and the crunch factor is the bonus.
2 chicken breasts diced
1 onion sliced
1 red chili diced
some minced ginger
1 pataks tika masala sauce
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 carrot diced
2 cups of beans sliced
2 fresh tomato diced
2 cups of mushrooms sliced.
omitted- tin of coconut milk and natural yogurt
Cumin spiced papadums microwaved for 20 seconds.
Heat a deep pan with oil. Sizzle garlic, chili and ginger and onion. Add curry paste and cook till it smells oh so good! Brown chicken in the same pan. Add all veges and tin of tomato. Add a little water if needed (as i didnt use coconut milk). Bring it to boil. Simmer for around 15-20 mins. Do a taste test and adjust accordingly. I do not usually add salt as the paste contains some.
If you have some sliced almonds, toast and serve curry with almonds and yogurt and papadums.
