Sweet orange hot curry Chicken

Irisa Raina 9


This was last nights dinner.
We had it with honeyed rice. I think the sweetness of the rice goes well with the heat of the curry.
I'm including the rice recipe also.

  2. Slice the onion into thin slices.
  3. Fry the chicken and onions in some oil with butter with the curry and black pepper till the chicken is slightly browned.

  6. Add the milk mixture to the chicken and cook for at least 30 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.

  8. If you are adding the frozen peas, turn off the curry and add the peas, cover and keep it covered till the peas are hot.
  10. To the water, add the honey and turmeric and Cook according to package directions, drain.
  11. This is what the rice will look like, the color is as amazing as the taste!
