Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Fry the okra

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions. Keep aside.

    Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a pan over a medium-high heat then fry the okra for 2 mins to get a little bit of colour on the sides, then remove from the pan.

  2. Cook the chicken in the spices

    Next add the onion to the pan and fry for 3-4 mins.

    Add the chicken and fry for 2 mins.

    Reduce the heat to medium and add the MALI SPICE BLEND with 100ml water. Let it simmer for 3 mins.

  3. Add the tomatoes and peanut butter

    Add the cherry tomatoes and the TOMATO PASTE, mix well and cook for 2 mins.

    Mix in the peanut butter and COCOA SPICES along with a 200ml of water and then cover it with a lid and let it cook gently over a medium-low heat for 5 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through. If the sauce is too thick, just add more water to loosen it.

  4. Serve!

    Stir the okra into the sauce, then serve the stew over the rice and garnish with peanuts (if using) and a squeeze of lemon, which enhances the flavour.

Nice meal, was a bit strong in flavour but still nice. I used carrot as couldn’t get hold of okra and it worked well.

I had low expectations, but this was delicious. The sauce was super nice and surprisingly creamy. A tip: make sure you heat up the peanut butter in the microwave before mixing it in.
