Fruity Chicken Curry - a delicious curry with tender pieces of chicken in a flavoursome curry sauce with vegetables and the sweetness from sultanas and the juice of an orange make it the perfect family recipe.
Chicken Curry with Sultanas
I am sure we all have certain dishes that remind us of our childhood and for me this Fruity Chicken Curry is one of those dishes.
My mum would always add either apple or sultanas to any curry she made, and I always remember loving that sweetness against the spices. It was one of the first curry recipes I introduced my children to, most kids love it because it's not too spicy and has that subtle sweet taste that compliments the blend of spices.
Best Chicken For Curry
While you will find chicken breast in certain curry recipes, for me it always has to be chicken thighs. I just prefer how tender they stay in a dish like this, plus they adds so much more flavour and depth to the sauce and really take on all the flavours that you add to the dish.
If you are not a fan of chicken thighs, then you can make the swap to chicken breast if you prefer, but just be aware that the flavours of the sauce won't be as rich and the water that is released from some chicken breasts may dilute the sauce. So you may need to adjust the ratios of ingredient
Hiding Vegetables in Curry
A great way to hide some vegetable in a curry is by using a food processor to pulse the vegetables until finely chopped, you can also use a grater if you don't have a food processor handy.
It's what I always used to do with vegetables if my kids were going through a particular fussy stage.
Another option if any members of your house hold are extremely fussy about veggies in a dish, is to remove the chicken pieces and blend up all the all the sauce with the vegetables until smooth before adding back in the chicken and sultanas.
Substitute for Sultanas
Don't like sultanas? You can add various different dried fruit to this curry, things like apricots work well or even prunes.
Or I sometimes add in some diced apple instead of the sultanas so that is a great option too, or some other fruits that will work are Mango, Banana or even pineapple. So don't be scared to experiment with the recipe to adapt it to your liking.
Sides for Curry
This curry with pair well with pretty much anything. A typical side would be some cooked Basmati or Jasmine rice.
or for a low carb option I love some roasted cauliflower or this Roasted Cauliflower Rice
But if you prefer your curry with chips, it's definitely a great combo, these Perfect Oven Baked Fries are perfect
