South Asian chicken curry



Ingredients:

1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1 6cm piece ginger
a few sprigs fresh coriander
2 peppers , mixed-colour
100g cherry tomatoes
2 skinless, boneless chicken thighs , higher-welfare
vegetable oil
2 heaped teaspoons curry poweder
half teaspoon turmeric
100ml light coconut milk
100ml organic chicken stock
160g basmati rice
1 lime
1 tablespoon mango chutney , (optional)

Method:

Peel and finely chop the onion, garlic and ginger. Pick the coriander leaves and finely chop the stalks. Deseed and roughly chop the peppers, then halve the cherry tomatoes. Cut the chicken thighs into 3cm chunks.

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium frying pan over a medium heat, add the onion and pepper, then fry for around 10 minutes, or until softened.

Add the garlic, ginger and coriander stalks, then fry for a further 3 minutes, or until softened. Next, add the curry powder and turmeric and cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes.

Throw in the chicken and cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly to coat.

Pour in the coconut milk and stock, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, or until thickened, turning the heat up if you need to. Add the cherry tomatoes for the last 5 minutes.

While the curry is ticking away, place the rice in a pan, add twice as much boiling water and a pinch of sea salt. Cover and cook on medium for 7 minutes, remove from the heat and leave to steam with the lid on for 7 minutes, then fluff up with a fork.

Squeeze half the lime juice into the curry, add the mango chutney (if you have some) and a pinch of black pepper. Taste and add a little more lime juice, mango chutney or seasoning if needed.

Scatter over the reserved coriander leaves then serve with the fluffy rice and lime wedges for squeezing over.
