Patak’s Chicken Madras

I would like to get to know my readers a little bit better so I would like to ask you a question. What is the one pre-made ingredient that you use to make dinners easier for you. It might be a pre-mixed spice rub, pre-cooked meat or really anything, mine is Patak’s curry pastes. For those days that I just need something simple that I can throw together that I know is going to taste good and keep my family happy it has become my go to ingredient. Because everyone needs something that takes very little effort that you know will turn out great every time.


Chicken Madras

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
70g (1/4 of the jar) Madras Paste
250g (1/2 lb) chicken, diced
200g (7 oz) canned chopped tomatoes
100ml water
recipe from the back of Patak’s jar


In a medium sauce pan, (I used a frying pan and it was a big mistake because the curry ended up getting every where) gently cook onions in oil on low with the lid on for 10 minutes, until the onions are golden.

Stir in curry paste and fry for 3 minutes.

Add chicken and fry until sealed.

Add canned tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes to reduce.

Add water; mix well, cover and simmer on low for 40 minutes, until chicken has fully cooked. Serve over rice.

    I also LOVE the Pataks pastes – talk about useful! Mine has to be garlic puree, these days I reckon I use it on average at least 3 times a week and means I always have garlic to hand and when i#39;m tired when i get home from work I don#39;t need to clean a garlic press on top of the other washing up!
