Ingredients: 4 large servings

Chicken breast
1
Curry powder
1 tablespoon
Yogurt
5 tablespoons

40 g
Ginger (finely chopped)
2 knobs
Garlic (optional)

Powdered paprika (optional)

E
Salt
1 tablespoon
Honey
2 tablespoons

approximately 50 ml

Steps

1. Add the A ingredients into a bowl and tear the chicken breast into smaller pieces with your hands. Mix everything together.
2. Put the B ingredients into a pot and stir-fry over low heat. Cover the pot with a lid. When the vegetables have wilted, mix in the C ingredients and continue to stir-fry.
3. Pour in the canned tomatoes and mix well. Cover the pot with a lid once more and lightly simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.
4. Turn off the heat. When the mixture stops bubbling, take your hand blender and blend the mixture until smooth. Blend until the curry reaches your preferred smoothness.
5. Add the chicken, the marinade, and the rest of the A ingredients into the curry and mix thoroughly. Put the curry back on a low heat and simmer gently for a further 3 minutes.
6. Mix in the E ingredients and the curry is ready to serve I made twice the amount I specified in this recipe.

Story Behind this Recipe

I have morning sickness and it's impossible for me to keep down garlic. I really wanted to eat some butter chicken curry though so I designed this recipe. I made this with ingredients that I had in stock so it doesn't contain any milk or cream, I used yogurt instead. I was so impressed with the resulting flavor.
