I cooked this tonight, lentil and chicken curry with tomatoes, ginger and garlic. ingredients
Two chicken breasts
A cup full of lentils
A sweet pepper
Two garlic cloves
First I boiled some red lentils for ten minutes, then fried some chicken pieces, a couple of spring onions, a sweet pepper and four large tomatoes. I added a small teaspoon of hot curry powder and the same of medium curry powder. I added a pinch of Fenugreek and then grated about an inch of ginger and two cloves of garlic into the frying mix. I’d cooked the lentils for a further twenty minutes then added it to the stir fried mix, covered it over for a few minutes more. It ended up being really tasty.
It hasn’t arrived yet so I’m just having a tonic water. We came out to sort out a meeting on Friday and because I’m still laid up with a cold I decided not to cook tea and order a curry instead.
I was inspired because my friend sent me a text ‘havin’ a curry, oh yes’ I think I took it as a challenge. I hope its good!
Every so often, after choir practice, I order a takeaway curry because I’m too tired to cook our evening meal. It feels like a real treat not to have to cook.
All I need to do is dish it out when it arrives. The local tandoori restaurant does really nice baltis and bhunas. Then pilau rice or garlic nan to accompany it.
I’ve done a drawing to illustrate as I will be otherwise engaged in a short while. There is an interesting movie on the TV and I might have a small glass of beer to go with the food.
Tomorrow I need to plan what paintings I’m going to do next, but tonight I’m going to chill with chilli!
