Want yellow chicken curry but don’t want to order in? Prepare the yellow curry paste ahead of time and use 1 1/2 tbsp of it for this yellow chicken curry recipe. This is a major enhancement to my first yellow chicken curry recipe. Curry recipes are easily tweaked to your liking, using available ingredients in your pantry and fridge. No meat? Use tofu! However, the use of fish sauce does not make this a vegetarian recipe. Similar to the first version of this recipe, this is a mild curry as that is what my family likes. The recipe serves roughly 4 to 6 people.
This is a kid-friendly curryl! To make the yellow turmeric rice, add 1 tbsp of turmeric powder and 1 tsp of ground cinnamon and as much raisins as you desire. Follow your rice cooker instructions. I cooked two cups of rice and added about 2 cups of water. Both my kids love the turmeric raisin rice. Art ate just the rice and raisins while Chip (my youngest) devoured his yellow chicken curry and rice. Art doesn’t like his food touching, so I served rice and curry separately. Chip did not have a preference. My husband went for seconds. I had to stop myself from having another serving.
Since we have been isolating ourselves, we have been cooking more often. I hope to post at least once a month. I am forced to use what’s on hand, so this is why I didn’t use shallots. Normally, I LOVE using shallots to make yellow chicken curry.
Did I tell you that I discovered how amazing Instacart is? I can get groceries delivered to my door from Superstore or T&T Supermarket. I prefer shopping at Lucky Supermarket, but we don’t want to chance getting sick during such uncertain times. It is more expensive than getting groceries in person, but we save so much time packing the kids. Plus, I’d probably get death glares for bringing my kids to the grocery stores these days.
I know I have been neglecting my food blog. It’s been a fun journey juggling a career and two kids. I am thankful that my husband cares for the kids while I’m at work.
