The chicken curry is a popular South Asian dish that has spread to the United Kingdom. Aside from curry, the original Indian chicken curry contains other spices. Because it can be difficult to find all of the necessary ingredients to make a true chicken curry, this recipe uses the most common spices in Spain.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 zucchini
- 1 onion
- 2 or 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 small green, 1 red and 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 teaspoon curry
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 or 3 chillies
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- chicken soup
- Cut the onion and peppers into 1cmx1cm pieces, and the garlic into 1cmx1cm pieces. Also, reserve the zucchini by cutting it into very small pieces. Cut the breast into small 2cmx2cm pieces and set aside.
- In a saucepan, heat the oil and sauté the onion over medium heat, giving it a few turns before adding the garlic and pepper.
- Add the zucchini and chicken when the onion and bell pepper are almost done. You give it a few turns and then add the spices (don't go overboard if you don't have any; the essentials are curry, ground black pepper, and turmeric). Pour in enough broth to cover the whole thing and bring to a boil for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.
- This dish is so simple to make that you will fall in love with it right away. It is very complete, with a flavor that is bursting with the incredible spices that it contains.
- It is preferable to add spices at the end of cooking to preserve their flavor and, especially, their distinctive aroma. Always in small amounts so that it is not too strong and, most importantly, not bitter.
