Flatdogs Chicken Mango Curry
By chef Ngalande Shamilimo
We use homemade mango chutney made from our wonderful fresh mangos in season, however store-bought chutney will work fine. Similarly, we use a homemade curry powder, but again you can use your favourite curry powder.
These amounts are to make a batch of curry sauce which makes about six portions.
For the curry sauce:
250g mango chutney
2 tblsp curry powder
Juice of ½ lemon
8 tblsp mayonnaise
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup milk
Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan and simmer for 3–5 minutes.
For the curry:
120g chicken breasts, cut into strips
Portion of stir-fry veg mix – green peppers, carrots, onions, and any other favourite vegetables
Portion of curry sauce
Portion of cooked rice, white or brown
To make the curry:
Stir fry the chicken until browned and then add the vegetables and cook for one or two minutes. Add in one portion of the curry sauce and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Serve with rice.
