Mum's chicken curry

Makes 2 portions


1 tsp butter
1 tsp oil
1 small onion, diced
2 chicken breasts, diced.
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp flour
1 tbsp tomato puree
1/2 oz raisins or sultanas
1 small apple, cored and chopped
180ml stock
1/2 tsp salt

1. Heat the butter and oil. Add the onion and chicken and cook for 6 minutes.
2. Add curry paste and gently cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add the flour and gently cook for 2 minutes.
4. Add the stock and simmer for 5 minutes until thick
5. Add the tomato puree, apple, sultanas/raisins and salt. Cook gently for 15 minutes.

  5. I love a good chicken curry. My husband doesn't, so I don't have it very often, though.

  6. Hi Dell! It really is a treasure, and so fun to make the things my Mum made for me.

    Very true Happy Cook, there's always something special about Mum's cooking.

    Hi Jaime, that's a real shame... in fact my favourite recipe by my mum (her veggie soup) is one she just does from memory :-(

    Hi Rosie, it was fantastic, great flavour!

    I love a good chicken curry too Deborah, fortunately my hubby does like this but there are millions of things he doesn't that I love so I've to take advantage of ti as often as I can!

  7. Ooh that looks great! White rice and Curry Chicken for dinner sounds delicious!

  8. aww I wish I had a handwritten cookbook from my mum! How lucky! Lovely ingredients to your dish ruth.
