If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you will know I’m a huge fan of the one pot. This one is quick to make and packed full of flavour.
1 tsp oil
I large onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
5cm piece of ginger, peeled and grated
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
2 tbsp curry paste (I used tikka Marsala)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs, roughly chopped
4 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
300g basmati rice
1 chicken stick cube
320g green beans, cut in half
1 lemon, juiced
Small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped
Heat a large sauté pan, add the onion and fry gently for 2-3 minutes until just softening. Add the garlic, ginger, chilli, curry paste, cumin and ginger. Stir fry for a few minutes.
Add the chicken and stir fry for a few minutes until just starting to brown. Add the tomatoes, cook for a few minutes, then add the rice, stock cube and 600 ml of cold water. Stir well and bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 15 minutes.
Lift the lid and stir. Scatter the green beans over the top, cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes . Stir in the lemon juice and coriander through the dish. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and chutney.
