Friday Night Chicken Curry with Onion Bhajis Recipe
Having previously posted my Bread Machine Naan Bread Recipe, I had a request for a recipe for the curry we eat with our naan bread. I thought that I would include a recipe for Onion Bhajis, which we also occasionally enjoy having with our curry. Apologies to anyone who makes real, authentic curries and bhajis- this Friday Night Chicken Currry and Onion Bhajis Recipe is what my husband and I enjoy, made with what I am able to get from our supermarket.
Although we have a date night every week, and almost always have curry, bhajis are just more of a hassle for me to make, and they are also deep fried, so I don’t want us to be eating them too often. But they do taste very nice! You can make them more or less spicy by adjusting the amount of spices in them, or you can use curry powder instead of separate ground spices. I have come up with the onion bhaji recipe according to the ingredients in a pre-packaged bhaji mix I used to get.
You can see in the photo of the curry ingredients on the left that I have used chicken thigh fillets this time, but the curry does taste better with chicken breast. You could of course use left over chicken from a roast if you’ve had one. At the moment I get all our meat from the reduced section of our local Co-op, and freeze it when I get home, as this is much cheaper, so thigh fillets were what was available this time. I only used half of them for the curry, but if I was using chicken breast, I would use two. The onion bhaji ingredients have the garlic bulb with them in the photo, but that shouldn’t really be there, as I don’t put garlic in the bhajis.
To be honest, our curry recipe is not exactly the same every week- I adapt it according to what I have on hand. Often it will be more of a korma type curry, as that is my husband’s preference, but I have also sometimes made a dhansak type curry by adding a cup of leftover lentil soup, or recently I used mince to make a dopiaza type dish, as I had no chicken left. You can also add coconut milk instead of double cream, and you can add coconut cream/ paste for extra flavour and texture. So the following recipe is perhaps the type of curry that I most often make.
It was our wedding anniversary when I wrote this post, so I went all out and made Bread Machine Naan Bread as well as the Chicken Curry and Onion Bhajis. You can see my recipe for the naan bread here if you would like to make it.
Please let me know if you try the Friday Night Chicken Curry with Onion Bhajis Recipe, and if you enjoy it!
