Chicken curry
Chicken curry
  1. Heat oil in a large heavy-based ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. Brown chicken in batches and transfer to a plate. Set aside
  2. Add diced onion and garlic to pan. Cook, stirring often, over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until onion is tender. Stir in curry paste
  3. Return chicken to pan. Stir in chutney and stock. Bring to the boil. Simmer gently, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked and sauce is slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in yoghurt
  4. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C (fan-forced)
  5. Follow packet directions to heat rice and transfer to a bowl, breaking up the grains
  6. Heat butter in a small pan until foamy. Add sliced onions and cook until softened and turning golden. Add almonds and continue to cook until both onions and almonds are golden and toasted. Add ¾ of onion mixture into the rice and mix well. Spoon rice mixture over the curry. Scatter remaining onion and almonds over the top. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until rice is crispy
  1. Meanwhile, to make the salad, combine tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, lemon juice and coriander and mix well
  2. Serve curry and rice casserole topped with extra yoghurt and fruit chutney. Serve with salad
Tips & Hints:
  • Microwave basmati rice is available in the rice aisle of your supermarket.
  • Alternatively, use any leftover cooked rice you may have in the refrigerator, or cook 1 cup of raw basmati rice, drain and follow recipe from step 6.
  • If short on time, omit baking casserole and serve immediately from stove.

I made this for a family dinner and everyone had seconds. It was easy to prepare and tasted great. I served with papadums, really yummy and easy.
