1 heaped tbs organic Curry Powder 2
1 heaped tbs Tandoori Marsalla 2
1 tbs tomato puree 4
1 block of creamy coconut (break it up) 4
600 mil boiled water 4
1 heaped tbs bouillon (not oversalted stuff!!) 4
1 tbs chicken or turkey seasoning 4
3 tbs rape seed oil x2 1
¼ heaped tsp Lebanese 7 Spice 4
Salt & Black pepper 4
2 tbs water x2 2
3 hard boiled eggs (keep whole) 6
3 medium potatoes (boil till soft in skin& peel then cut into 4) 5
1 Fry onions till soft & transparent
2 Add garlic & curry powders stiring & adding water not to burn
3 Add chicken & coat on all sides for 5 minutes
4 Add puree,apple then the water & seasoning. Bring back to the boil & add coconut.
Simmer for 45 mins giving you time to boil eggs & potatoes if you cook rice in 15 minutes start with 10 left on the clock
5 Put in the hot peeled & cut potatoes & stir
6 Put in the eggs (if you can pick them up) Give everything 5 minutes & ready!!
1 ramekin Basmati rice for 2 servings cook as normal
Cold Garnish – cut
cucumber,tomatoes,lettice, spring onion or red onion
banana & peanuts.
The banana (cold ) really does work very well. There is just enough liquid left in the curry for you to mash up all on your plate if you wish, or play spot the chicken as some potato pieces look identical!!
I normally put coconut in with 5 minutes to go but earlier it really works very well & besises playing with hot eggs ‘n potatoes with 5 minutes to go is more than enough….
