Just as the name implies, it’s a Nigerian version of the western chicken curry soup, which has gravy like consistency and look.
What makes this different is that we use vegetables that are common to us, corn flour or flour for thickens and trust me it’s so delicious and a great alternative for our tomatoes based stews and sauces.
I put my own twist on it, this recipe is very easy to make and a great way to eat your vegetables, so let’s get cooking. For this recipe you will need the following
1 tablespoon corn flour or plain flour
3 tablespoon vegetable oil
Salt and seasoning cubes
Wash and boil your chicken like I have done in the picture below with salt, seasoning, curry powder, thyme, ginger and garlic, I prefer to use chicken stock in making my curry than just plain water, it makes it more flavorful .
Slice your carrots into circles not to thick or too thin.
Wash and peel your potatoes, cut it up in sizeable chunks, slice your red and green peppers plus runner beans and then mince your garlic and ginger.
After the chicken has boiled for about 10minutes, take it out and sieve the stock then set aside.
In a clean pot add your vegetable oil on low heat and gently sauté your onions, garlic, ginger and curry, till it’s softened.
Add the carrots and potatoes to the onion mix and stir to combine, the flavors right now will just make you hungry! Allow these to cook together for just 2minutes while constantly stirring.
Now is the time to add your chicken stock and cover to boil till the carrots and potatoes are soft but still crunchy, add in the peppers, runner beans and chicken taste for salt and seasoning and adjust accordingly, allow these to cook together for 5minutes.
Take your corn flour or plain flour and mix with 3tablespoons of water, gently stir this into the pot to help thicken the sauce, be careful not to pour in all the flour mix at once or your sauce might get too thick( if it gets too thick just add a little water and you will be fine).
Cook this for another 3minutes and your Nigerian Chicken Curry sauce is readily yes drum rolls right now.
Serve this yummy dish with rice or pasta, I served mine with rice and enjoy.
