When my friend Mary from Scotland came to visit me last year she brought me a curry mix. I never had curry before and when I tried it, I found it to be really good. This particular brand you can’t get in the USA but it can be bought in the UK. I haven’t seen anything similar as far as a powder mix but I believe there are bottled curries. This one is not Indian, it is Chinese style. It’s really good and has just enough spice….definitely not like eating fire…LOL!! It was real good. I served it with a jasmine coconut rice and an Asian salad.
3 tbsp. Mayflower Medium curry mix or any other powder mix or Jar mix…for the jar mix you will need to follow the directions for that
2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 onion, diced
1 cup frozen peas thawed
2-3 tbsp. peanut butter *this is what Mary does and it makes it taste really good
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
16 oz. water
Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan. Stir fry the chicken for three minutes or until no longer pink. Add the onion and peas and stir fry for another minute. Remove from the wok/pan and keep warm. Add water. Stir in the curry mix. Whisk until the sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Add the peanut butter. Reintroduce the chicken, onions and peas. Lower the heat and simmer for two minutes. Stirring occasionally. Serve hot over rice, if desired.
