Recipe by JustJanS

Combines three of my favourite things-curry, chicken and soup! No time given for marinating.

Top Review by Tisme

I made this recipe exactly as written, and everyone loved it.
Great flavours, with just the right spices for this family.
This turns out a very thick type soup, so I served crusty bread as well as naan for dunking.
This was a lovely soup, thick, spicy and so warming ~ Just the thing for a cold night.
Thanks Jan, will be making this again.

  5. Stir constantly until the chicken is sealed (white looking) and the onion is soft, add the dried spices and ginger, then stir in the tomatoes and chicken stock. When simmering, pour in the basmati rice, stir, and simmer for 10 minutes.
