Check out this wonderful recipe from Mama Dor’s Kitchen for a truly delicious and healthy chicken curry; a very treasured family favourite called Gujarati Chicken Masala. Make this delicious mild curry to enjoy with the whole family. In fact, if you’re home with the kids, get them involved in the cooking too as this recipe really is so simple.

Ingredients:

Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons of Mama Dor’s Gujarati Chicken Masala spice blend*
  • 600g chicken (thigh works best)
  • 300g natural yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Method:

  1. Make a paste by mixing the Mama Dor’s Spice Blend with the yoghurt and tomato puree. Add the chicken and mix thoroughly.
  2. Marinade for as long as you can. Even 30 minutes will do the trick, but the longer the better. In a deep saucepan, fry the onion in olive oil, until golden brown. Add the chicken and marinade sauce and mix well. Reduce heat, cover and leave to cook for 30-40mins, until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve with boiled basmati rice or naan bread.

Mama Dor’s top tips for cooking this dish:

  • Chicken thighs work best as they can absorb more flavour and retain their moisture. If you’re using chicken breast, it won’t need as long to cook
  • Leave the chicken marinate to sit at room temperature for about 10mins before cooking. If you take it straight out of the fridge and into a hot pan, the yoghurt will curdle and split
  • If you like more sauce, just adjust up the quantity of yoghurt and tomato puree (keeping the ratios the same)
  • Once the onions have browned, this can all be thrown in the slow cooker for even more ease

Now really is the time to be polishing those cookery skills. And with Mama Dor’s spice blends, there isn’t any hassle dry roasting whole blends, or having multiple packets of spices you’ll probably only ever use once. Mama Dor has done all the hard work for you! With over 20 spice blends to choose from, there really is something for everyone.

Keep an eye on Mama Dor’s social media over the coming weeks and months. There’ll be live cook-a-longs for adults and children, plus a variety of tips and hints to make the next few months full of your favourite spices!

* Note, if you do not have the Mama Dor’s Gujarati Chicken Masala Spice Blend, you can substitute for a generic curry powder blend. It won’t be as aromatic or authentic but the method described above will give you a very simple chicken curry.

Love seeing all these posts of pubs and restaurants reopening! Here’s an update from The Angel in Bicester 🍻Oh hi there, remember us? 🙋🏼‍♀️ We remember you and can’t wait to welcome you back on.... 🥁 MONDAY the 12th APRIL!! 🎉🔸Opening Hours. The pub will now be open from 4pm-10pm Monday - Thursday. 3pm - 11pm Friday 12pm - 11pm Saturday 12pm - 9pm Sunday The bar will close 30 minutes before closing time allowing you all enough time to finish your drinks. 👩🏼‍🌾🔸Booking. We have decided that the best way for us to operate means will not be taking bookings, tables will be on a first come first seated basis. 🪑🔸Track & Tracing! It is now mandatory to collect track and trace information from ALL customers. Yes, that’s EVERYONE on your table. We have the relevant NHS COVID 19 poster with the QR code specific to us. You’ll find this on displayed on arrival a member of staff will also have a portable one to bring to your table when they take your first order so we can ensure that everyone has signed in successfully. We would advise that you download the NHS-Covid 19 app before you arrive to make the process as smooth & simple as it can be. No worries if you can’t, we have wifi and you can download it here! No excuses 👀*No track & trace = No drinks* 🔸Face Coverings. We must ask that on entering the building at any time you do so wearing a face covering. Once seated at a table you may remove it. However if for any reason you need to leave the table, for example to come inside to use the toilet, or entering the pub itself for any other reason you must put your face covering back on. 😷🔸Table Service Only. Once you and the members of your group are seated a member of staff will be over to take your order.If you need us just flash us a smile or give us a wave and we will be with you as soon as possible. 🔸Rule of 6.There is a maximum of 6 people to a table however each individual table has its own maximum capacity. Although it’s tempting to stand up and mingle as we’ll all be outside we ask that you remain seated and don’t hop from table to table. 6️⃣I know that’s a lot of information to take in, trust me, we’ve been trying to process it all ourselves. Like always we will do our best to operate the best we can and provide an environment everyone feels safe and comfortable in. ItThank you for following the rules and understanding that they’re not things we want to do but things we HAVE to do. 🥰Much Love Hannah & Team Angel 🧡*P.S, please come prepared for the weather! Bring your own, blankets, brollies, coats, hats, suncream or anything else you might need to shield you from the weather of all four seasons. ☀️🌱⛈❄️🍂As we know, we can experience them all in one day 😂* ...
