Fast Mid Week Curry

Dinner recipe for a speedy tasty curry

This dinner is great if you are short on time but fancy something really tasty.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes if using dried rice/10 minutes if using ready made rice.

Ingredients



Cooked Chicken
Onion
Mayflower curry sauce
Rice
Prawncrackers

Optional

Peas
Mushrooms


Recipe

1.  Cook rice if using dried rice, if using microwave rice leave this step until later.
2.  Chop onion and fry in a little oil and set aside.  If you like cook some mushrooms at this too.

3.  Follow instructions on pack for preparing curry sauce - a rough guide is to use approximately a third of the box with 420 mls of water - this is enough for my husband and I and our 2 kids.
4.  Add water to pot and mix in powder, whisking until smooth, once brought to the boil, simmer for a couple of minutes.
5.  Add the cooked onion (and mushrooms and peas) and the chicken pieces and stir through to heat up.
6.  Serve with rice and prawn crackers.

Finished Result

This dish can be served with oven chips too as an alternative.

This is the easiest curry to make and is mild enough
that it can be enjoyed by kids.
