Curried Chicken With Tomatoes and Nuts

Recipe by currybunny

This is a real favourite in my home, a lovely warm curry that I normally serve with steamed rice, chanai roti and mango chutney. It makes a great dinner party dish as it is sooo easy to make and everyone loves it. My English mum is very anti-curry and she not only asked for the recipe but made it for herself and some girlfriends a few days later. (Although she did decide she didn't really need to measure the curry paste (!!) so her curry was about 3 times as hot as mine). The tomatoes add a really nice touch. This is based on a Woman's Weekly recipe.

This is a great recipe and easy to make. Plus, I usually have the ingredients on hand... always a plus. We're wimps, I guess, but I had a feeling the curry paste would be too much. Still, I tried it with 1/3 cup... after adding the chicken I took some of the curry out as I KNEW it was going to be too spicy. It turned out plenty hot, even after taking out some of the curry. I think I'll use about half next time. And there will be a next time! Thank you.
