This week is National Curry Week, 7-13 October 2013, so to celebrate this ‘British’ favourite I thought I would share with you one of my recipes.

The great thing about curries is that you can really put your own mark on them, adding your favourite ingredients and customising them to you or your family’s tastes, they are ideal for using up your vegetable glut, why not make double quantities and freeze some for later on.

This curry is quick and easy to make, the fruit adds a nice sweetness which will appeal to children.

Fruity Chicken Curry

Your ingredients

  • 25g butter/margarine
  • 2 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless and cut into chunks)
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 3 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 stick of celery (sliced)
  • ½ apple (diced)
  • ½ red pepper (chopped)
  • 75g sultanas
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper

What you need to do

  1. In a large pan melt the butter, add the chicken pieces and cook on medium heat until sealed and browned on all sides (approx. 8 minutes), then remove from the pan.
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and fry until soft, then add the curry powder and stir well.
  3. Return the chicken to the pan with the celery, apple, red pepper, sultanas and chicken stock.
  4. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with rice and naan bread.

Serves 2

Other vegetables that you could add include cauliflower, courgettes, runner/french beans, potatoes, carrots, spinach.

We are all big Curry fans in the office, especially Sylvia who regularly frequents her favourite local restaurant.

Why not give it a go; it will warm you up now that there is a chill in the air.
