During the winter months I always crave certain foods - one of them being curry. It is such a nice comfort food, and the smell of the spices cooking is absolutely divine. As a massive plus it is gluten free and paleo naturally.
Instead of ordering in a chicken curry, I taken making my own. I don't have a proper recipe for it, but use about the following quantities:
- 1/2 onion chopped up
- 2-3 tsp /2-3 cloves chopped garlic
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 lbs chicken breast chopped into smaller pieces as photographed.
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 3 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp red curry paste
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
- Optional: 2 cups spinach, 1/2 bell pepper
Over a medium heat, cooked onions with oil until they are almost clear. Add garlic, curry paste and curry powder and cook for about 30-60 seconds before adding in coconut milk. Stir. Add remaining spices and chicken, cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until chicken is cooked 20-30 minutes. If you are adding peppers and spinach, add these half way through cooking (about 10 minutes).
I typically serve with rice, but to make paleo I actually enjoyed with a side of yam fries the other day. An interesting pairing to say the least.
