Mrs Nesbitt's Curry.

I have been experimenting in the kitchen and have come up with my own curry recipe.
Depending on personal taste and level of heat liked 1 teaspoon of the following spices + 1 teaspoon of garam masala. From watching Rick Stein's curry expedition it would appear that different regions have their own versions of garam masala. I have my own version but I can't tell you what's in it.......not because it's a secret - I forget what's in it.... but it's yellow! A while ago I had a spice revamp/clear out and put all the various spices into one big jar! Mrs Nesbitt's own Garam Masala - I can never reproduce this to taste exactly the same - such is everyday life here in my kitchen!

Getting back to the plot - mix all spices together.
Cut two chicken breasts into pieces and put to one side. (Away from Dog's noses!)

In a pan cook through some chopped onion with  oil of choice. I use Frylight - or water.
Add spices and water to reach a paste stage and add more water.

Add garlic - again according to personal taste and who you are with - I use the prepared frozen cubes - so easy and convenient.
Add diced chicken and cook through - usually 5 - 10 minutes.
Stir in chopped veg of choice - I always have a bag of frozen chopped peppers in the freezer.

Add Passata - until mixture is nice and thick and chicken and vegetables are covered.


Crumble in a chicken stock cube.

Simmer for 5 - 10 minutes until all veg is hot and mixture is thick. Add more water or passata if needed.

Just before serving stir in a Mullerlight Coconut Yoghurt.

It will look like this and taste amazing!

I made this only a couple of nights ago and Jon said it was the best curry I had ever made, and it's all my own take on a curry.

I served it with  rice.


  1. That really does sound delicious!
    I like the new blog theme too, very smart and clean.

  2. Thanks Jessica - yes Blogger finally let me experiment - yours is an inspiration!

  3. Sounds lovely, I might try it myself.

  4. If you do try it let me know what you think. Dx

  5. It does look delicious!
    I have never made a curry from scratch.

  6. Sounds delightful, giving it a try today.

    TIP. The Spice Men were on the One Show last night and they said that all jar spices should be kept in the fridge, never heard of that before. Going to have to do a sort out of my storage cupboards today and find room in the fridge for my assortment of spices.

    Great Blog. THANKYOU

  7. I tried your goulash recipe and loved it, so shall have no fears about doing this one Denise - will report back.

Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
