A curry is good but when feeling down, it has to Nana’s Chicken Curry. It is full of good flavour, aroma, texture and is ready start to finish in 30 minutes. I serve mine with fluffy seasoned basmati rice for a perfect meal. Whether it be just for you or family and friends, it suits every occasion. I also add peas and carrots to stretch the dish and the children love it. Just boil them and add to the rice.
