This is an unreal tasty homemade chicken curry.
I love spicy food, for me the spicier the better – normally. But this curry is as mild as they come. The taste is just so class that it just doesn’t need to be messed with (unless ya want to of course).
The best news? – It’s good for your cholesterol. Just don’t go eating a massive bowl of it in one go. So if you’ve been told you need to get your levels down or you just want to start a healthier buzz, check this out.

It’s taken me three or four goes to get this tasting exactly how I like it, each time getting better & better. Recently I’ve added – red lentils, unsalted nuts (walnuts / cashews / hazelnuts) & mixed seeds (pumpkin / chia / sunflower / linseed) and they really make a difference.
It’s one hell of a tasty dish. Let me know how you get on with making yours.
