This spicy, low fat recipe is just what the body needs if you’ve been eating bland diet food.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons curry powder (possibly more if you really like it)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I would suggest half this amount)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 bay leaf (I didn’t have one and it was great)
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root (I don’t like ginger so I didn’t use it)
1/2 teaspoon white sugar (I didn’t use any)
salt to taste
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into bite-size pieces
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup coconut milk (I used about a cup because I added veggies)
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
large head of broccoli cut up
3 half bell peppers chopped into bite size pieces
7 asparagus spears cut into bite size pieces
1. I started by browning curry, paprika and cinnamon for about two minutes on medium heat
2. Add the chopped onions and drizzle in the oil, and garlic, sauté for about 2 more minutes. Add chicken, all your veggies, sprinkle of salt. (you could add ginger and bay leaf now)
3. Add tomato paste, yogurt, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
4. Remove bay leaf, and stir in lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Simmer 5 more minutes.
I just ate mine but you could easily put it over jasmine or brown rice.
