Store Cupboard Curry



Lovely blogger http://lifeaiknowit.blogspot.com/... wrote of her supper angst...and mentioned that familiar feeling of 'not feeling' like cooking!

This is my stand by supper - it doesn't take long to make, the children are guaranteed to eat every scrap, there isn't too much washing up, but does give you plenty of time (whilst stirring, with one hand free) to have a little sippy or two of wine!

Here goes -
In a wide, low pan -
Chop up an onion into rings, fry in a mixture of oil and butter, fry VERY slowly ( drink here )
When caramalised add the following -
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cardamon
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
half tsp ground tumeric
half tsp ground cayenne pepper
Throw into pan cubed chicken pieces and brown (drink here)
Add water to half cover contents
Add sachet of creamed coconut
Add handful of sultanas
Add handful of sliced almonds
Add big handful of ground almonds
Put in baking oven or at 180 degrees, and leave while you have another sippy!
Cook rice
Take curry out of oven and stir in a cup of yoghurt.
Serve up supper with any remaining wine!!

Cin Cin!
