Not Your Serious Chicken Curry

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

An easy curry, creamy and slightly sweet. My children loved this when they were young, my dad took the recipe back to Scotland and it became his staple chicken curry recipe. My mum still makes it, without the chicken, she just likes the sauce! Its versatile, feel free to adapt to your own taste. Its from Readers Digest, Quick & Thrifty Cooking

This was a great quick and easy curry. I used the sauce with Quorn chicken flavored tenders. It was a nicely sweet and mild curry. I actually added a bit of hot curry powder after tasting just to make it mildly spicy. Two cheers out of three for this one, but the one with sinus problems thought it needed more flavor. He was invited to take advantage of the powdered cayenne.

  3. Blend in the flour, add the chicken stock and cream, and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.

  5. Add the chicken and cook, covered, over very low heat, for 10 minutes.
  6. Serve with rice.
  7. A sambal of chopped cucumbers, spring onions and radishes, moistened with a little white vinegar, is good with curry.
