I wanted to share with you one of my simple recipes that I have been making for years and is very close to my heart. It is the first recipe that my Dad (Russ or “Bhailo” as he was known to friends and family) taught me just before I went off to University. With my own Spicetin made up by my Grandmother
It was taught to him by his Father my Grandfather (MakhanBhai) , which is quite unusual in the Indian culture as men don’t usually do any cooking!
But as both worked away from home and their families, my grandfather in various mills around East Africa and my Dad left home at an early age to work in Kampala in Uganda. They quickly had to learn to cook for themselves. Obviously taught by my Grandmother though. Who else?
It’s a very simple Chicken Curry recipe. The key to this and most curry recipes is the masala paste that is made prior to adding your chicken, meat or fish. The masala paste is where all your effort goes into and you’ll understand why once you have made it.
As everyone likes their curries slightly differently, some people like it really saucy, others really hot & spicy. I recommend to make it a few times and you will then work out how you really like it. So don’t be scared to swap different ingredients and see what it does to the flavour, consistency and end result.
Hope you enjoy the recipe and please let us know how you get on, send us some pics or if you have any questions just post on our blog and I’ll respond.
