Tomato Curry Blend

5/5 from 4 Customers

This simple curry is a great one to make in late summer, and you can use any mix of tomatoes you have to hand. It’s based on a South Indian dish called thakkali, and the combination of tangy tomatoes with hot fragrant spices and nutty seeds such as cumin and mustard is delicious simply served with plain rice and natural yogurt.

Tomato Curry Recipe:

PREP 20 mins
COOK 30 mins
HEAT 2
Serves 4

You Need:

500g diced chicken (thighs are best) or use meat-free chicken style pieces for a veg version
1 large onion - finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic - finely chopped
500g cherry tomatoes - left whole, or use roughly chopped salad tomatoes
15g bunch of coriander - roughly chopped
1 tsp sugar
Rice and natural yogurt to serve
1 portion of TOMATO CURRY BLEND

Method:

Fry the onion in 3 tbsp oil for 10 minutes or until soft and translucent
Stir in the garlic, ½ of the tomatoes, the sugar, 100ml water, the TOMATO CURRY BLEND and 1 tsp salt, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the tomatoes have broken down to make thick sauce, mashing them up as they soften
Add the chicken and remaining tomatoes then cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the tomatoes have just started to soften (but not break down completely)
Sprinkle over the coriander then serve with rice and yogurt on the side

Another super blend from "The Spicery" wizards! Having received a free sample with another order, I promptly gave it a go following a super tomato harvest! A beautiful tasty concoction that would also be easily modified for any veggies out there. Ordered some more of this blend straight away.

Thanks for your lovely review, Helen - it's great to hear that your harvest of tomatoes went to good use in this tasty curry! It must feel really satisfying to enjoy a meal knowing that you not only cooked it from scratch, but also grew the ingredients yourself!

I was very impressed with this recipe and the Tomato Curry Blend. I loved the flavour of the sauce created by the spices and the broken down tomatoes. I also loved the pop of flavour that the second batch of tomatoes brought to the party. A very clever and flavoursome creation.

Yum, this looks delicious, Robin! We're loving the contrast of the vibrant red tomatoes against the green of the coriander. We're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this month's free sample!

2 days ago with some left over chicken I used the Tomato Curry Blend (Free Sample – thank you very much) Not enough meat so added leeks and a pepper. Served with a Bhaji and Flatbread with Raita on the side. The food just vanished – Can’t explain that!!!

A proper feast! Great to hear how much you loved this autumnal free sample!

Roast Chicken and Sprouts with a difference - Cooked "The Spicery Way". We just love that little burst offlavour from the cherry tomatoes. Made some mixed Raita and found some flatbreads - delicious

Loving the contrast of the vibrant red and green - Christmas has come early! Looks delicious!
