STEP 01

Get a saucepan and fill 3/4 full of water. Put on the hob to boil. This will be for the rice.

STEP 02

Get a frying pan and put on the hob. Turn the heat on the hob up to 3/4 if you're using gas, or 7 or 8 if you're using electric. Heat up the frying pan.

STEP 03

Once hot, add a drop of oil and swirl round to coat the bottom of the frying pan.

STEP 04

Add the chopped onion and garlic and stir into the oil. Cook until the onion turns a light brown colour.

STEP 05

By now the water for the rice should be boiling. So add the two cupfuls of rice and stir to stop the rice sticking to the bottom.

STEP 06

Image

Add the curry powder to the onions and stir, coating the onions in it.

STEP 07

Image

Add the rest of the vegetables, the chicken and the stock. Give everything a good stir.

Turn the heat down to about halfway and let the mixture gently simmer (bubble lightly) for about 15 minutes. If the mixture goes a bit dry, a drop more boiling water. Stir occasionally.

STEP 08

Image

Stir in the double cream to thicken things up a little.

Pick a small bit of rice out with your fork to see if it's done-taste it to see.

STEP 09

If it is, drain in a colander and spoon onto a plate. If not, keep boiling for a few more minutes.

STEP 10

Image

Spoon the curry onto the plate with the rice and enjoy. This goes nice with some naan bread and a few cold beers.
