The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking: love for those you are cooking for...

Yields6 Servings
Cook Time45 mins
 1 Roaster Chicken
 4 Medium Onions Chopped
 2 tsp Fine Sea Salt
 2 Casia Barks
 1 Black Cardamom Pods
 5 Green Cardamom Pods
 2 Dried Bay Leaves
 3 Cloves
 1 tbsp Minced Ginger
 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
 1 tsp Bolst Curry Powder (or a mild curry powder)
 0.50 tsp Chilli Powder (optional)
 1 tsp Coriander Powder
 1 tsp Cumin Powder
 3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
 1 tbsp Sweet Tomato Paste
 1 cup Boiling Water
 Coriander Leaves
 0.50 tsp Garam Masala
1

In your favourite medium sized saucepan, fill with water until its 1cm deep. Let this start to boil.

2

Add onions and salt and soften until translucent. Do not be tempted to use a masher, let the onions soften on their own. This will give the sauce its unique flavour and consistency. Cook this on a low to medium flame. This can take up to 20 minutes.

3

Next add the whole spices: black cardamom, green cardamons, bay leaves, cloves and casita bark along with the chicken and cook until the chicken turns white. Note: water content from the chicken will be released and this will help cook the chicken also.

4

Next, turn the heat up and add in the powdered spices: curry, chilli, cumin, coriander alongside oil and sweet tomato paste. Cook for two minutes and keep stirring. Then continue cooking the spices for a further 20 minutes with the lid on.

5

Add 1 cup of boiled water from the kettle and turn the flame up on high. Boil this for five minutes.

6

Turn the heat down, garnish with coriander and finish the curry dish on a low simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on.

7

Turn off the flame. The easy cook chicken curry is ready. Sprinkle the dish with garam masala for fragrance and serve with hot white basmati rice. Enjoy 🙂

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness. And Hungry Husband is just that! When he cooks for us at the Hungry Hijabi HQ, there is a lot of soul cooking that goes into his recipes. He loves eating and he loves cooking!

Todays post will in fact be written by the Hungry man himself so i really hope you thoroughly enjoy his little blog post.

Hi this is Hungry Husband here,

Iv just finished cooking a really easy, quick and child friendly chicken curry for my children. Sometimes when i return from work, to distress, my most favourite activity to do is going into the HQ kitchen and cooking up dishes for my family to eat. This recipe is a recipe i learnt from my late mother. I remember her making this dish all the time for us. When my mother was working at her sewing machine i remember she would just leave the onions melting with water and then going back and forth into the kitchen doing the next step and before i knew it, the chicken curry was ready and delicious!

This easy cook curry dish is great for days where you want a fuss free cooking session (its purse friendly too), which would result in a delicious and economical curry to feed the entire family. A chicken curry really is the most tastiest and cheapest way to feed the entire family. Today i purchased a roaster chicken, a small sized one for £3.50 chopped into curry sized pieces with the skin off. I also am quite fussy about the chickens these day; i find there is too much water content in them due to them being injected. So its really important you use a good quality chicken.

It's good to help out the wife in the cooking department even if the curry doesn't taste great; a small act of kindness never goes unnoticed. Coming home to my family is what i look forward to the most (tell a lie, i would love to come home to food!!) but lets be realistic; thats not going to be a realistic option everyday especially as there are little ones running around wanting and needing attention; its time i help out in the kitchen too during the mad weekdays.

This really is a fabulous slimming world recipe for all those wanting to enjoy curry in a healthier way. The onions are the star of the show in this recipe. And you really need very little oil. Its almost as good as my oil less fish broth!! Give this day cook curry dish a go and feel free to drop a comment below s we can reflect on it 🙂
