Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Boil a kettle, then add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 12-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

2 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

While the rice is cooking, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick, with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken thighs and cook for 3 min on each side or until golden

3 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Meanwhile, peel the brown onion[s] and chop very roughly

Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and chop the ginger very roughly

Peel and chop the garlic very roughly

Roughly separate the coriander leaves from their stalks

4 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Add the chopped onion, ginger, garliccayenne pepper, curry powder and coriander stalks (reserve the leaves for garnish!) to a food processor

Blitz until smooth or very finely chopped – this is your Sri Lankan curry paste

5 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Add the Sri Lankan curry paste to the browned chicken and cook for 3-4 min

Boil half a kettle

6 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

Remove the coconut cream from the sachet[s] and chop it roughly, then dissolve in 250ml [400ml] boiled water

Add the red wine vinegar, soy sauce and 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar – this is your coconut stock

Add the coconut stock and cherry tomatoes to the pan and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until a thick sauce remains and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

7 Aromatic Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

While the curry is cooking, chop the reserved coriander leaves roughly

Once the chicken is done, transfer to a clean board and shred it apart, using two forks - this technique is known as ‘pulling’

Return the shredded chicken to the pan and season generously with salt and pepper – this is your Sri Lankan chicken curry
