Spice Pots Review and Giveaway

One thing I love is a curry, but although over the years I have tried, have never been able to make an authentic curry at home.  I usually tend to move back to jars after yet another failed attempt at making my own.

When I was recently contacted to ask if I would like to review Spice Pots Festive Food Survival Kit.  I had seen and read about these before, and wanted to try them.

Festive Food Survival Kit

The kit comprises of

  • 4 Spice Pots
  • A recipe booklet

I wanted to try these spice pots out and decided to choose a recipe from the booklet to try out

Bhuna Butter Chicken

A lovely homemade curry using fresh or left over chicken

  • 4 cm grated ginger
  • 6 cloves garlic crushed
  • 150 ml natural yoghurt
  • 8 tsp Bhuna Spice Pot Mix (Spice Pots)
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 kg chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • Oil (for frying)
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • coriander to garnish
  • 4 tbsp double cream (optional)
  1. Mix Together

    Ginger, garlic, yoghurt, Bhuna spices, tomatoes and salt.

    Add the chicken and coat thoroughly

    Cover and maranade for the minimum of 2 hours (overnight is preferable)

  2. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion until soften and browned.

    Add the chicken mitur5e and fry for 2 minutes

  3. Mix in the coriander and cream if using and then put the chicken curry into a shallow oven proof dish
  4. Bake for 1 hour at 180 C.

    If the top starts to brown too quickly cover with foil. If not browned you can brown under the grill at the end of cooking.

  5. Leave to stand for about 10 minutes

    Serve with rice or choice of breads

The instructions easy to follow, and best of all it tasted amazing.  I am now looking forward to trying their other amazing recipes both in the booklet and from their site.
