Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Boil half a kettle

Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high heat

Once hot, add the coriander seeds and fennel seeds and cook for 1-2 min or until fragrant and toasted

Once toasted, transfer to a food processor and reserve the pan for later

2 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Cut the chicken thighs into rough bite-sized pieces

Return the reserved pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the chicken thighs and cook for 3-4 min or until browned

Once browned, add the ground turmeric and cook for a further 1 min

Transfer the browned chicken to a plate, reserve the pan and juices

3 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Peel and roughly chop the shallot[s]

Roughly chop the tomato[es]

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

Peel and roughy chop the garlic

4 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Add the chopped shallot, tomatoginger and garlic to the food processor with the spices

Add a pinch of salt and pepper and blitz until smooth – this is your spice paste

Remove the coconut cream from the sachet[s] and chop it roughly

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] and chopped coconut cream in 200ml [350ml] boiled water – this is your coconut stock

5 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

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 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

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

6 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Meanwhile, return the reserved pan and juices to a medium-high heat

Add the spice paste and cook for 4-5 min or until fragrant

Whilst the spice paste is cooking, chop the green beans in half

Once fragrant, add the browned chicken, green beans and coconut stock and cook for 6-8 min or until thickened to a curry-like consistency and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) - this is your Keralan chicken curry

7 2415 - Keralan Chicken Curry With Lime & Chilli Rice

Meanwhile, zest 1/2 [1] lime and then cut in half

Cut 1 [2] half[ves] into wedges

Cut the green chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Add the lime zest and half of the chopped chilli to the cooked rice and give it a good mix up – this is your chilli & lime rice
