We hadn’t made a ‘normal’ curry for a while- and by ‘normal’ I mean what we used to think of as normal= a chicken curry!  

The ‘normal’ French Thomas Curry

1 garlic clove, chopped

1cm piece of ginger, chopped

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp black mustard seeds

5-6 curry leaves

chicken- breast or thighs chopped into bitesize pieces

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp turmeric

1 tbsp garam masala

2 hot chillis, chopped

1 large onion, sliced

1 red and green pepper, chopped

1 tin tomatoes & 3-4 fresh tomatoes

squeeze lemon juice

  • heat a little oil and fry the garlic, ginger, cumin, mustard and curry leaves for 1 min.  Add the chicken and stir until browned.  Remove from the pan.
  • add a little more oil if the pan is dry.  Add the paprika, turmeric and garam masala and combine to a paste- you can add a little water to make the paste if it is a little dry.
  • add the onions and fry until softened.  Add the peppers and fry for 5 mins.  Add the chicken back to the pan and stir to combine.
  • add the tomatoes and leave to simmer for 30 mins until thickened.
  • stir in the lemon juice just before serving and season with salt & pepper.
  • Eat!
