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.
- 4 Chicken thighs, skinless, boneless and cut into strips
- 100g Goldfish brand Madras curry paste
- 3 tbsp Frozen chopped onion
- 1 tsp Frozen chopped garlic
- 1 tsp Frozen chopped chilli
- 1/2 Broccoli, blitzed in processor
- Optional- Naan bread
- 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.
- (Put your naan bread in the oven if you have some).
- 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.
- Fry the garlic and chilli in a wok until aromatic, add in the broccoli and fry for 4 mins.
- Serve the curry in bowls with the accompaniments on the side. Enjoy!
- If you're veggie use Quorn or make it a vegetable curry, it would be great with boiled potatoes in.
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,
