Nice and Spicy Chicken Curry

Spicy Chicken Curry

It's a bit on the chilly side isn't it? I know Cornwall usually gets away with the worse of the cold weather but it's pretty darn freezing here at the moment. Hubby and I are playing the thermostat game on a fairly regular basis. I turn them up, hubby turns them down, I turn them up again....and so it goes on. It's not just us is it?

Anyway, this cold weather definitely calls for hot and spicy food to warm you up and my spicy chicken curry is just about perfect. It's a bit on the hot side for small kids though so this one's probably best reserved for the adults.

For this recipe you need to make the curry sauce the night before so the flavours have 24 hours to develop - it really does make a difference to the finished dish. You can also make the curry sauce and freeze it until needed. Feel free to try different meats too, leftover roast beef would work well I think.
