the potato and lentils had thickened it up nicely, which meant I didn’t need to add anything else to the sauce,
I fancied a curry, Mr 5 didn’t, I didn’t really feel like faffing about frying off spices and what have you, so inspired by a curry I saw blogged on here a while ago, but can’t remember where, this is my
All in one Madras chicken curry:
It’s also fat free, if you don’t add any yogurt at the end, or use fat free yogurt, in fact if you didn’t add the chicken you could have a vegetarian option, or use quorn, whatever, it was really easy, didn’t take long to cook, anyone can make it and it tastes delicious.
So instead of cooking the spices, onion and chicken in oil first I mixed everything together in a pan.
Diced onion, peppers and potatoes in with some Madras curry powder and added a handful of lentils to help thicken it up and a few cherry tomatoes.
Then I added some diced chicken, a dollop of mango chutney and lime pickle
topped it up with water
put a lid on it and simmered it for about 20 minutes and then added a lump of frozen spinach
cooked it for about 10 more minutes, the potato and lentils had thickened it up nicely, which meant I didn’t need to add anything to the sauce, stirred in a dessertspoon of yogurt and served it on some rice
I had it with a few Indian snacks I had in the freezer
and some mini poppadums
it turned out really well, it was very tasty too, I’m going to try that method with a few other things and see how I get on..
