Another Chicken Curry Recipe
The biggest category of curry recipes on the Curry Focus website is for chicken curries (closely followed by vegetarian curries). I browsed through the untested chicken curry recipes and there were some chicken curry recipes that I had not tried out yet. I looked at these and decided to test the Punjabi chicken curry recipe this weekend.
The Punjab region is split between Pakistan and India. It is hard to tell which part of the Punjab this recipe comes from. Maybe it is both.
The Curry Recipe Ingredients
Pretty standard set of ingredients needed for this chicken curry. I picked up what I needed (chicken thighs, spinach and fresh coriander/cilantro) when doing my Saturday shopping. The rest of the ingredients were already in the kitchen cupboard.
Making the Punjabi Chicken Curry
This is one of the easiest chicken curry recipes on the Curry Focus website. Preparing the ingredients is easy and so are the cooking steps.
There were no dramas making the curry and each step followed the previous step like clockwork.
The rice takes exactly 14 minutes to cook so it was easy to coordinate the curry and the rice being ready at the same time.
Tasting and Rating the Punjabi Chicken Curry
The curry tasting team arrived just before the curry was ready – they have also perfected their timing and I don’t think that they have been late for months. Nice to know that they don’t dislike my cooking.
I served up the Punjabi chicken curry with basmati rice and everyone happily tucked into the curry (I had bought some naans when out shopping and these were also happily munched along with the curry).
And the Punjabi chicken curry was very popular. The chicken was well cooked and very tasty. This is basically a dry curry with very little sauce. The spinach and coriander (cilantro) gave a bit of green colour to the curry. The curry received a taste score of 8.5 out of 10 with a spice/heat rating of “Medium To Hot”.
A lovely curry.
Make the Punjabi Chicken Curry Again?
This is a great curry and is on my list of chicken curries that I would make again.
