A curry dinner is a great opportunity to experiment with spices, savory, sweet, spicy, you must try them all! This curry recipe features fresh ginger, orange peel, and cashews in a creamy garam masala curry sauce. All of the ingredients are slowly simmered together on a low heat for 30 minutes so that the flavors can combine and permeate every inch of this aromatic dish. Serve with basmati rice and naan.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion (peeled and diced)
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled and diced)
  • 1 centimeter fresh ginger (peeled and diced)
  • olive oil (or ghee)
  • 1 kilogram chicken breasts (sliced into thin strips)
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • sea salt
  • 1 orange
  • 200 milliliters heavy cream
  • 100 grams cashews (unsalted)
  • cilantro (or parsley for garnish)

Directions

  1. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger to a food processor or mortar and pestle and process until a paste forms.
  2. In a cast iron skillet heat up a drizzle of olive oil or ghee and brown the chicken in batches. Remove from the oil and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, add more oil until the bottom of the pan is covered and add the vegetable paste you formerly made. Fry it for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the garam masala and stir a few minutes until it becomes fragrant.
  5. Add the chicken back in, stir everything together, and salt to taste.
  6. Cover with water and the orange peel and let simmer on low heat 30 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  7. Remove the orange peel, lower the heat, and stir in the cream.
  8. Garnish with cashews and cilantro or parsley. Serve with basmati rice.

This is pretty good. I only used a pound of chicken and added some carrots. Next time I'd probably add some extra veggies. I put it over rice, and it is good as leftovers for a few days.
