And when I crave for curry…


…I either go to Indigo, on the Piezișă street (that’s if I want a spectacular curry, made by the book, as in mother India), or I make a decent curry, as that’s all the knowledge I gathered thanks to experiments and curiosity. Yesterday, for instance, I had a homemade bean and chicken curry. I got the spices from Selgros (to spare you/myself the questions).
Besides the chicken, I used pickled pearl onions…

…garlic marinated in olive oil with aromatic herbs…

…brown beans…

…and canned tomatoes.

I marinated the chicken (boneless chicken legs) in yogurt, red onion, cucumber, salt, pepper, garam masala and tikka masala. For two hours.

When I got to the cooking part, I started with softening the pearl onions and the garlic in butter. Five minutes at most, on low heat, without coloring.

I then added the chicken with the marinade in the skillet. I waited for about a quarter of an hour, until the entire meat changed its color.

I added the crushed tomatoes and the beans. I let it boil on low heat for half an hour.

I turned off the stove and waited for five-six minutes for the curry to cool down a bit.

I ate it with steamed rice with saffron.

Because the curry I made was hot, next to it I placed a few slices of cucumber and tomato. That’s all. Stay healthy.
