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

Add the chicken and coat thoroughly
Cover and maranade for the minimum of 2 hours (overnight is preferable)
- Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion until soften and browned.
Add the chicken mitur5e and fry for 2 minutes
- Mix in the coriander and cream if using and then put the chicken curry into a shallow oven proof dish

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.

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.
