This is a mild  chunky curry, but with plenty of taste my favourite dish to cook.

This recipe will feed four people, great for sitting  around a table and sharing.

Ingredients:

3 good chicken breasts diced
1 Large red onion
2 sticks of celery
1 large mango still firm not over ripe
1 sachet of coconut butter -(alternative 1/4 tin of coconut milk)
1 dsp olive oil
1 dessert spoon of curry powder (madras)
1 lime
1 Vegetable oxo (optional) to make 1/2 pt stock
salt and freshly ground pepper.


Method

1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and gently fry the curry powder.

2. Chop the onion and soften in the pan with the oil

3. Once the onions are softened then fry the diced chicken at this point the aroma will will the kitchen and clear your sinuses

4. Add the celery,  the stock, salt and pepper, zest and add a sqeeze of lime ( alternative a splash of bottled lime juice)

5,  ( optional depending on how much time you have this is a good point to leave to marinate)

6. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 mins with the lid off to reduce down

7. 15 minutes before serving dice the mango into chunks and add to curry, add one satchet of coconut butter my preferance ( or add coconut milk ) This will thicken your sauce and bring about a whole new dimension of taste to your curry.

8. Keep stirring occassionally as you do not want the mango to turn to mush.

Then serve with nan- bread , rice, bombay potatoes and onion bahjees


For beverages a good acompliment would be;
Ginger Beer, Elderflower Champagne  :   wine: recipe curtesy of my favourite brewer Gareth

And of course good friends to share the meal with

This was the first meal that Lois cooked for me, and it was absolutely fabulous.

For you foodies out there, this is one is on my highly recommended to try list.

Hi Welsh lamb
That would do nicely, it certainly is worth making, so give it a go and I hope you enjoy your meal

I'd be interested to know what your thoughts are on it. I hope to catch up with you soon

We shall be in Wales for 7-8 day long break during late July: We are going to the Square Festival at Dann's, and then doing a bit of a tour.

If you ask nicely, I sure that we could drive up to you place and Lois would cook her Curry for you and John.

Hi Lois - ended up in Wales to wind Bazzer up - I was born in Hemel though

Real reason is cos my family are from near Nefyn (Bodger & Kaz country) and I used to go on holiday there every year - never wanted to go back to Basildon where we lived as had such a great time with my cousins - we were right little horrors : :yeah: I always preferred the country to town.

We are near Tal-y -llyn with its lovely lake ( see my avatar) & railway so you are more than welcome to drop in for a bevy or three

Hi welsh lamb

I heard bazzer needs winding up good move then    

beautiful picture, I love wales as well, had a brilliant time in the Gower recently.

Many moons ago I looked at moving down to Wales when small holding prices were 30,0000+ a very long time ago

I think Gareth is already working out our stops and now has you to add as we are going to be in your part of the country for the week.

Good chance to meet up with like minded people, always been into the self reliant way of life and two fingers up to the big supermarkets

Must agree with you Lois, or should your name be Chardonnay now? Romford is poxy.
Don't get too carried away with Mercedes though. Got a mean head butt on a Friday night after two bottles of Peach Scnapps and a gallon of Lager.

Hi Bazz

No sympathy for self inflicted mean head lol

No the Essex girl thinks Lambrusco 2009 is an excellent vintage  

The Hertsfordshire girl prefers a bit of Bollie

But I am now looking forward to the wild brewer's organically brewed Catton Vintage Elderflower Champnage
