Curry Chicken is one comfort food that brings back lovely childhood memories.
Wayne and I always argue about who’s granny cooks curry better, mine or his. We figured, it’s really not about the taste, but the childhood memories that the aroma of curry brings. So I bet YOUR granny cooks the best curry too 🙂
We got a little tired of the usual stuff we’ve been cooking so we decided to experiment with cooking curry. But unlike our grannies, we decided to cheat a little and use Prima Taste’s curry mix :p
Well, it’s the first time we’re attempting curry so we didn’t want to intimidate ourselves with the experience!
Basically, we just prepared the additional items – Chicken and Potatoes – and followed the instructions on the package.
And Mr Cook-Too-Much poured 2 packs of the mix into the pot instead of one and increased the water required correspondingly. But we did not increase the other ingredients.
And we found that the amount of gravy is just nice for 4 chicken drumsticks, 1 pack of 6 wings (mid section) and 5 potatoes.
Of course, that will be too much for 2 people to finish in one sitting -_-
But it so happened, that we had a couple of special guests turning up for dinner that day, totally out of the blue!
The amount of curry was just nice for the 4 of us, with a little left over, and everyone found it really tasty!
The only imperfection is that the curry had a slightly powdery texture (though not very obvious), probably because the coconut came in powder form. If you’re particular, you can try doing without the powder coconut that comes with the packet and use the coconut milk that comes in a small carton instead.
Given the very little effort it took and the great satisfaction that came with the meal, we’ll definitely try it again!
Showed my parents the photo and they were impressed even without trying it.
Even if you don’t really cook, we’re pretty sure you can do it too!
