Chicken and Vegetable Curry packed with delicious vegetables such as carrots, zucchini and butternut squash with some added creaminess of coconut milk.
Have I mentioned how much I love curry? Probably. Actually make that definitely. What can I say, what's not to love about curry?
Really you can add absolutely anything into a pot for a curry, so long as you have that mix of spices right. A good blend of spices is really important, add not enough and the curry will be bland, add too much and well, you won't even be able to identify what is in the pot.
I am by no means a curry expect, in fact when it comes to curries, I am pretty much self taught. Any skills I have learnt when it comes to curry making, has literally been from watching cooking tv shows, reading endless cookbooks and watching friends (I am lucky enough to have a really good friend who has been showing me North Indian cooking, which she of course learnt from her mum and family).
There are really so many different styles of curries out there too, depending on who you ask, it will follow completely different ingredients.
This Chicken and Vegetable Curry was actually using up some vegetables I had in the fridge. I hate waste, so if I think there are ingredients that need to be used up, it will usually go into a pot for a curry or a soup. It's always good idea to do a inventory of produce you have every few days, that way you don't miss things that might become spoilt if left a few more days. The last thing yo want is to waste food you have spend your hard earned money on.
For the vegetables in the dish, you can chop finely by hand or if you are luckily enough to have a food processor, you can add the vegetables to that and blitz till finely chopped. Chopping the veg fine is perfect way to incorporate vegetables into a dish if you have fussy kids (or adults).
I like to use the food processor bowl of my Nutri Ninja Complete Kitchen System with auto IQ technology. I love this blender and food processor. The auto IQ technology, means it blends or chops to a set pattern depending on what it is you are making. So cool and really makes certain kitchen tasks when in comes to cooking, effortless.
This curry is also perfect if you are on a low carb day, just swap out the sweet potato for butternut squash, they are both pretty similar in this curry, I have used both in the past, so can assure you, either are fine. To replace a side serving of rice , you can serve with this delicious Roasted Cauliflower Rice. You have probably come across various ways to cook cauliflower rice, roasting it is my absolutely favourite, as it gives it an amazing flavour. Even more delicious if you use a coconut spray oil.
