Ginger Chicken Curry with Tender Peas and Basmati Rice

My recent goal has been to experiment with at least one new recipe a week. The new recipe I tried this week was a delicious ginger chicken curry recipe courtesy of Once Upon A Chef.

What I loved about this recipe:

  • Great combination of flavour (garlic, ginger, curry powder, cilantro)
  • Easy and fast to make
  • Can be easily batch cooked
  • Uses readily available ingredients
  • Combines peas with the chicken all in one dish
  • Freezes well for a second meal
  • It was a big hit with the husband and kids

Recommended side dish:

This scrumptious chicken curry goes very well with a simple side of basmati rice.

Suggestions/Tips:

  • I have made other chicken curries before but I think what really brought out the flavour of this recipe was the freshly grated ginger and also rubbing the chicken pieces with curry powder before cooking.
  • I found that the curry tasted better without the yoghurt although this could have been because of the type of yoghurt I was using. I recommend tasting the sauce before adding the yoghurt to assess whether it’s really needed.
  • I discovered that frozen peas taste fresher than canned peas and are better for your health.
  • Adding turmeric to the basmati rice while cooking will complement the color of the chicken curry.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
