I love this curry, so many of us including me just buy a jar of processed sauces that are high in sugar, salt and fat and don’t taste very good.
I then made this curry and since then I have made my own sauces as I can then decide what goes into it.
So I discovered the s recipe in Gordon Ramsey’s book but I have used the same spices but have swapped a few things out and used healthier alternatives.
So your curry can be veggie or not. I do like having this with chicken but also chickpeas.
For the chickpeas just buy the dried ones soak over night then boil for a hour this means they still have a bit of crunch and is more economical than the tins.
Dice the chicken and put in a bowl
Add a dash of sea salt
1/2 tsp chilli 🌶 powder mild
1 tsp ground coriander
4 garlic cloves (use a garlic press) or 2 tsp garlic powder
4cm of ginger grated finely or 2 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp lemon 🍋 juice ( I freeze the lemon then blitz in a blender and use the juice from this)
100ml greek natural yogurt
Add a red chilli diced if you want more heat
Marinate overnight in the fridge
In a saucepan add a tbsp of olive oil
Then dice a red onion and 2 garlic cloves in the pan
Add 1 tsp of coriander and chilli 🌶 powder
1 1/2 tsp Garam masala
1 1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
75ml natural Greek yogurt I like to use one with coconut in it
Add 150ml tomato 🍅 paste
If you like it sweet you can also add in some mango juice
You can also add other veg I added mushrooms I love them in curry dishes you can add peppers, tomatoes etc
Cook for about 20 mins
Serve with rice I used long grain and basmati rice healthier low GI measure out a cup of rice then add 2 cups of water to the rice and boil on low heat then put a lid on near the end and let it soak up the water
Serve with natural yogurt, poppadoms and mango chutney
The drink is lemon 🍋 juice so I use the blended frozen lemon use a small sieve and squeeze out the lemon juice.
Then grate some ginger into it
Too with fizzy water
Add mint leaves
Its a lovely refreshing non alcoholic drink perfect with this curry.
If you want to add alcohol I would recommend gin or rum.
This is a quick and easy meal to make prep time about 15 mins if you have all the spices you just need the yogurt, tomato purée and your chicken or chickpeas. Tasty and healthy meal for the whole family. Leaves you full and satisfied.
