This main course is ideal to make when you are having a dinner party, or as a meal in itself for a family supper – it will be enjoyed by all … and make quite an impression!

Preparation

Get your butcher to joint the chicken into pieces all roughly the same size. Cut the onion, peppers and carrots into chunks. Fry the onion over a high heat with a little oil – you want it to become crisp. Dip the chicken in flour and add it in the pan, until browned. Add the carrots and peppers, maintaining the high heat so that they don’t become too soft. Separately, heat the milk and dissolve two tablespoons of curry powder in it. Pour the mixture over the chicken, salt to taste and simmer, taking care to serve the chicken when it is perfectly cooked and the sauce just nice and creamy. Serve with steamed basmati rice.

Tips
Match chicken curry with a light red wine such as a Beaujolais or rosé wine from Provence. Usually this dish is accompanied by basmati rice, but if you prefer you can substitute a pilau rice or even couscous.
Trivia
Curry is a mixture of different spices, widely used in Asian cookery, especially in India, where it is called Masala. For several years it has been widely used in Italian cookery as well as in many other cuisines of the world, to give a touch of something extra to vegetable, meat or fish dishes.
