The best “curry in a hurry” and drink combo ever

Who doesn’t love a curry? No one, that’s who! Everyone loves a curry! But if you just raised your hand and decided to be the exception that enforces the rule, allow me to convert you. This curry is tasty AF, but is also loads healthier than what you’d get from your local takeaway – plus it costs like under a tenner and makes 4 portions, easy. You’re welcome, y’all.

 

 

What goes in?

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

A piece of root ginger, peeled and grated

Red chilli, as much as you like, chopped

4 tbsp curry powder

1 tps olive oil

6 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

500ml boiling chicken stock

A pinch of sugar

150g natural Greek yogurt, whisked

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Small handful of finely chopped fresh mint or coriander

 

What to do?

Put the onion, garlic, chilli and ginger in a small food processor and blend those bad boys until to a paste. TOP TIP: add a little water so they blend better – don’t worry if the result is a little watery, the excess water will cook off.

Now get your sauce pan and pop the olive oil in and let it heat until the oil starts to “move around” – this means it nice and warm and you’re ready to go. Add the paste you just made and stir fry for about five minutes, then stir in the curry powder and cook for a few minutes or until all aromatic and nice.

Now it’s time for the chicken! Add this, the stock and just a pinch of sugar. Mix the whole lot well, cover and let it simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the liquid is reduced to whatever consistency you like.

Pop the pan off the heat, stir in the yogurt and season to taste. Scatter over the mint or coriander and voila! There’s a curry in a hurry. You can serve this bad boy with some rice or chips (I heartily recommend sweet potato chips if you go with that – they’re the bomb) or whatever you damn well please.

 

 

What to drink?

I know summer is almost gone but after this little tipple you’ll bloody well swear it’s sunny outside. Taking inspiration from the Finnish “Long Drink” this baby sports some gin and bitter lemon. Here’s how you make it:

35 cl dry gin

125 cl bitter lemon

Handful of frozen fruits – NO ICE BABY! These little gems will make your drink nice and cold and add a lovely fruity flavour to it
