Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Add the rice and 350ml [700ml] 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 10-15 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 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Boil a kettle

Peel and chop the onion[s] roughly

Peel and chop the garlic roughly

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

3 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Split open the cardamom pods, removing the black inner seeds

Grind them slightly in a pestle and mortar, and heat a dry pan over a medium-low heat

Once warm, add the cardamom seeds, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and turmeric

Toast the spices for 30 seconds, then add a drizzle of vegetable oil to the pan

4 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Add the onion, ginger, garlic and kaffir lime leaves and continue to cook for 1 min

Crumble in the stock cube[s], ground almonds and half the [whole] honey (you'll use the rest later)

Cook for a further 2 min

Transfer the mixture (keep the pan for step 6) to a processor and blitz until smooth paste - this is your curry paste

5 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Cut the chicken thighs into strips

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

Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 2 min

6 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Add the curry paste to the chicken with 180ml [230ml] boiled water

Cover with a lid and cook on a medium-low heat for 10 min, then remove the lid and reduce for 5 min further until thickened to a good consistency

7 Turmeric Chicken Curry

Meanwhile, trim the green beans

Add them to a pot with 200ml [250ml] boiled water and a pinch of salt

Cook for 7 min over a high heat or until they are tender
