Winter Warmer Series- Curry

This is not technically a new recipe. This is one of my fail safe recipes I use when I don`t know what to cook. Another slow cooker recipe if needed I whipped this up in under and hour on the hob.

3 carrots
2 brown onions
2-3 stalks chopped celery
4tbsp curry powder
chicken/ vegetable stock
1/4 pumpkin
2 potatoes
bag of spinach
red lentils
tin of chopped tomatoes
fresh tomatoes
tin of coconut milk
500g chicken breast or diced chicken
coconut oil

This is such as easy recipe. First of all put some coconut oil into a frying pan and add chopped onions to brown. Add diced chicken until it is sealed. I then add all the chopped veg, except for the spinach and lentils, mix these all around in the pan. Add the curry powder and coat all the veg and chicken. Add tinned tomatoes, fresh chopped tomatoes and coconut milk. You can add a little water at this point as well to preference. I then transfer to a big old sauce pan at this point and add a sprinkle of lentils. I find the lentils dissolve down to nothing and help thicken the sauce a bit.


I let this simmer away for the best part of an hour until everything is nice and soft. Pop your rice on to cook and stir through the fresh spinach in the curry.

Enjoy! I serve mine in a bowl with a spoon of rice, spoon of curry , dollop of greek yogurt and some sliced banana on top.


YUM! What are your fail safe recipes??
