Hurry Home Chicken Curry

Back in the day when my friends were tucking into roast beef and Yorkshire puddings for Sunday lunch, in my house, we’d be eating rice and peas (black beans), and chicken prepared in various ways. I would cook the family recipe, but over the years I’ve transformed it into this quick as a flash version, but never fear it still remains the most delicious curry ever.

I have called it ‘Hurry Home’ because generally, as with most curries, it’s best made the day before so the flavours can bloom; then when you get home you can just reheat it and relax into a big plateful…
