Mr K-E saw an Australian TV chef making a curry on TV and thought it looked delicious, but more important - easy. He can't remember the name of the chef, who is apparently Australia's number one celebrity chef.
For Fragrant Chicken and Spinach Curry, the recipe is:
(I won't bother with quantities, you'll see why later)
- Fry onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, ground coriander seeds, turmeric and a pinch of cayenne pepper.
- Then add chicken.
- Then add a tin of tomatoes and salt.
- Simmer for 15 minutes.
- Add soft brown sugar, lime juice and spinach.
- Once the spinach has wilted, serve on top of rice garnished with some fresh coriander.
We followed the recipe exactly, but I thought it was bit bland. Mr K-E agrees. I was suspicious when I saw the recipe - 2 cloves of garlic /pinch of cayenne pepper? We are going to try again with double the amount of spices. And fry it in half butter/half oil.
(And add Thai fish sauce, but don't tell Mr K-E)
