1 kg Chicken cut into 8 pieces Any kind of meats can be used
1 can of crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 large onion sliced
1 tablespoon crushed garlic
5 large potatoes quartered
Olive oil or butter for frying
Salt to taste
2 cups Basmati rice
Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. Add 3 cups of water 1.0/1.5 Rice/Water. Bring to boil and let simmer until done, about 20 minuttes.
In a wok or caserole fry the onions until transparent. Remove and set aside. Next add the crushed garlic and fry the chicken pieces on high heat for about 5 minuttes.
Add the curry powder lower the heat and continue frying until the fat separates from the meat. Add the onions and the tomatoes and fry a few minuttes. Add water to the level
of the chicken. Add the potatoes and boil until half the fluid has evaporated and lower heat and simmer until done. The potatoes when cooked will thicken the gravy and
you just need to cook a little more if the gravy is too thin. Let the edges of the potatoes start to break up. If too thick, just add some water. Time: about 30 minuttes
Forget the garlic if you dont like that. The curry powder can be replaced by a handfull of dried Oregano but lower the heat to prevent burning.
This is my basic recipe and the chicken can be replaced with any kind of meat, pork, beef, mutton or even your neighbours dog.:)
I just tried this recipe using fish. Do it all without the chicken and the potatoes. After the gravy is done, add the fish carefully into it and simmer until done. I used chunks of Cod but figure that any white fish will do. What about trying this with hard boiled eggs? Give me some time and i will be updating this page with step by step instructions using photographs.
