Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Get the rice on

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions, and keep warm.

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan over medium-high heat and fry the onion for 6-8 mins, or until golden.

    Meanwhile, boil the potatoes (if having) in another pan until almost done, then drain and keep aside. 

  • 2.

    Create the curry base

    Add the GARLIC PASTE and the chicken to the onion pan and fry for 2 mins.

    Add the MURGH KARI PASTE with a splash of water and fry for 2 more mins.

    Add the tinned tomatoes and ANISA'S SEASONING to the pan and cook for 3-4 mins. 

  • 3.

    Let it simmer

    Turn the heat down to low, add the potatoes (optional) and cook for 5 mins (or until potatoes are tender).

    Turn off the heat and stir through 1-2 tsps sugar, then let it cool for 1 min.

    Add the yoghurt to the curry 1 tbsp at a time, gently stirring between each spoonful. 

  • 4.


    Serve the curry over rice with the tomato & cucumber salad alongside (if having). Serve with extra yoghurt and a squeeze of lemon (optional).

Very tasty, but a lot like the sauce you can buy ready made in jars

James - Feb 12, 2019

Quite nice but nothing I couldn’t cook better myself from scratch so a little disappointed. Good taste but doesn’t come out looking like the advertised picture.

Penelope - Feb 12, 2019

Good depth of flavour and heat. Lovely with rice and naan bread. Tossed a few toasted cashew nuts on top. Left out the potatoes and used breast rather than thigh meat.

Amanda - Feb 11, 2019

So so tasty !!!

Calum - Feb 10, 2019

Pretty lit ngl

Joanna - Feb 10, 2019

Unfortunately, this curry was too hot for me and my son. We like hot, but this was far too hot and certainly not a 'family curry'. I prefer the other ones tbh, so, sorry, will not be reordering this. It was easy to make however and I suppose you could always reduce the amount of the spices!

Darren - Feb 06, 2019
