Quick and Easy Curry and Broccoli Rice | Recipe

May 31, 2016

A bank holiday Monday calls for an easy dinner, something that’s tasty and pleasing to end the long weekend with. Mr W and I were craving an Indian, but to save cash I made a quick and easy Madras Curry and Broccoli Rice for dinner.

I have to admit I cheated with the curry, using the Goldfish pastes again. They’re so useful though and make a perfect curry sauce every time! I decided to make a spicy broccoli rice this time as we did not fancy both normal rice and Naan bread. Our go to’s are the Peshwaari Naan from a certain supermarket’s Finest range- yum.

  1. 4 Chicken thighs, skinless, boneless and cut into strips
  2. 100g Goldfish brand Madras curry paste
  3. 3 tbsp Frozen chopped onion
  4. 1 tsp Frozen chopped garlic
  5. 1 tsp Frozen chopped chilli
  6. 1/2 Broccoli, blitzed in processor
  7. Optional- Naan bread
  1. Cook the chicken in a pan, when it starts to colour add in the onion and cook until soft and the chicken brown. Put to one side.
  2. (Put your naan bread in the oven if you have some).
  3. Add the paste into a pan on a low heat with 400ml water, stir until dissolved, add the chicken, stir and leave to thicken stirring occasionally.
  4. Fry the garlic and chilli in a wok until aromatic, add in the broccoli and fry for 4 mins.
  5. Serve the curry in bowls with the accompaniments on the side. Enjoy!
  1. If you're veggie use Quorn or make it a vegetable curry, it would be great with boiled potatoes in.

Madras Curry and Broccoli Rice

This dinner was just what we needed to refuel after a long day of sorting our house out. Lots of DIY is super knackering! The madras wasn’t as spicy as we’d normally have so next time I think I would cook some extra chilli into the mix before adding the sauce in. The broccoli rice made a great accompaniment and Mr W even enjoyed it, I hadn’t made it for him before so I’m glad he did.

Hope you had a great bank holiday weekend? What’s your ‘cheat’ takeaway dinner? Let me know in the comments,

      Broccoli rice is super yum, beats cauliflower hands down.

    I think without the chilli would actually be my preference, not a fan of really spicy food but this looks delicious!

      The sauce wasn’t spicy at all 🙂 but the chilli is easily omitted from the broccoli rice!

    I love the idea of using broccoli rice with this, though I have never been brave enough to attempt making my own curry x

      This was such a cheat, using a paste! I do love making my own curries though, it’s more about patience than being brave 🙂

    As a vegetarian I love that you added that option. It looks lovely & a money-saver even when you’re craving the takeaway. Amazing blog xo
