Chicken Curry With Peas and Coriander

"This recipe came with a list of other recipes in an advertisement. It is a pitch, though for a line of ingredients owned and operated by Presidents Choice, which is mainly produced in Montreal. Zaar doesn't accept some of the ingredients on the list. So the canola oil, peas, and 8-vegetable cocktail, it all belongs to the President's Brand (PC) line of foods. Also, Zaar does not recognize the 8-vegetable cocktail, so I'm writing it here."

  1. I made as posted, except I reduced the amount of onion a bit. I used V8 for the vegetable juice cocktail. Also, I used frozen peas instead of canned ones and added them a bit before the V8 to allow them to heat up. This is a very easy recipe to make on a weeknight. Lots of flavor for a short cooking time. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
  2. We eat a lot of curries and quite a few of them are ground meat (keema) and pea ones. For some reason, this one was really, really delicious. I'm not sure if the difference was using chicken rather than lamb, or the tomato juice and celery seed I used as a sub for the vegie cocktail juice. Whatever it was, this was great. I used frozen baby peas not canned.


I am an Israeli-Canadian who grew up in Montreal Quebec. I love to cook, especially for family and friends, and I love to experiment with recipes and try to do different variations of the same recipe. I did do part of cooking school, but found the place stressful and all the good recipes high in fat and calories, even the good ones. I don't have a fave cookbook, but I eat kosher. I have a dream and that is to own my own B&B one of these days. I also love creative writing, and maybe I like to try make up a recipe of my own and see if I'm good at doing that. I have to add that I do have some favourite chefs from the Food Network. They are Giada De Laurentis from Everyday Italian; Micheal Smith from Chef at Home; Jamie Oliver and everything he does; Anna Olson from Sugar; and Chef Gordon Ramsey from Hells' Kitchen and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 08 <img src=""> <img src=""> fall 08 <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 09 <img src=""> fall 09 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
