Chunky Chicken And Veg Balti

Published Wednesday, 19 January, 2011 by Joanna

Comforting easy curry!



  • 4 large chicken legs, skinned, boned and cubed
  • 6 tbsp medium Balti curry paste
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 sliced onions
  • 2 green peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 5 button mushrooms, sliced
  • handful of broccoli florets
  • handful of cauliflower florets
  • 150ml water


Blanche the cauliflower and brocolli together (boiled for around 3 minutes until half cooked and transfer to iced water. Take out when cooled completely to go back to room temperature).

Heat the oil in a pan and stir fry the chicken for around 5 minutes until golden. Do this is batches. Transfer to kitchen towel to drain off excess oil.

Stir fry the onions, peppers and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Add the paste and water and bring to boil. Turn down the heat and simmer with a lid on for 5 minutes. Add the brocolli and cauliflower and simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve with rice or some yummy naan bread.

    Sorry, just to say this recipe serves 4. Leave to get to room temperature and freeze in batches in you're by yourself. Will stay good for 3 months, defrost in fridge and reheat in microwave until heated through.
