Easiest Ever Coconut Chicken Curry (with photo)
« on: February 07, 2012, 02:28:32 am »


This is one of our favourite dinner recipes that I have converted for the Thermomix. Itís a chicken curry, which is very mild and based on a coconut cream sauce Ė even my 2 and 5 year old eat this.  Even better the sauce is made in under 2 mins so it is super quick and uses ingredients that we have in our pantry

Ingredients
500g chicken breast, cubes
1 onion, peeled and quartered
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small green capsicum
Small can of tomato paste 140g
1/2 can of coconut milk
Pinch of salt
2 tsp of mild curry powder
2 tsp of Garam Masala
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Method
Place the onion, garlic and green capsicum in the Thermomix bowl. Blend speed 8 / 10 secs.

Scrape down the sides of the Thermomix bowl and add the tomato paste, coconut milk, salt and spices and blend speed 7 / 10 secs.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl again and add the chicken cubes. Cook for 20 mins / 100C / Reverse + speed 1.

Serve with Basmati rice and coriander.

Itís not my recipe, I found it somewhere on the internet sometime ago but unfortunately I didnít record the source. Weíve been using it for so long now, and it is so easy that I had to share.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I don't have a can in the pantry CC but I have one of those small plastic packs and that is 140g.  Hope this helps.

I have just made this , very yummy, I put in a 440 can of diced tomatoes instead of the tomato paste so I have lots of juice, just had some juice over my left over veggies from last night for my lunch , thanks Snappy I will be making this again.

So your dish would have been a bit sloppier (for use of a better word) than snappy's AB and the juices would have been soaked up by the rice?  Did you take a photo?

I don't use tapatalk AB, I use my computer for photo storage and posting onto the forum.

I can't reduce the size of my photos either Brenda and they come out sideways but the forum on tapatalk on the ipad is easier than on the website, (I found anyway)
I do the best I can
