Healthy Inspirations Recipe of the Week – Butter Chicken

May 25, 2017

hi

Everyone’s favourite Indian food has a lot of ingredients, but they’re mostly spices to give depth of flavour so don’t be deterred. Serves 6 

Ingredients

1 Tbsp coconut oil
2 medium onions, finely diced
3 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp mild curry powder
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
750 g chicken thighs
2 (400g) cans diced tomatoes
1 cup cream
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp garam masala
1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
1 Tbsp sugar substitute

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large fry pan, add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent. Add the ginger, curry powder, cumin and coriander and cook for 1 min, stirring constantly.
  2. Cut the tenderloins in half and stir them into the onion mixture over moderate heat until well coated. Place the contents of the pan into a slow cooker or crock pot, then stir in the tomatoes, evaporated milk, tomato paste and garam masala. Cover and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.
  3. Stir in the yoghurt and sugar substitute and cook on low for 15 minutes (any longer and the yoghurt may separate).
  4. Serve with rice (if on plan) and steamed vegetables, or a tomato and cucumber salad.
  5. Note: Sauce may be thickened by mixing 1 Tbsp cornflour with a little cold water to make a paste, then adding some of the sauce to the paste and mixing well. This can then be added to the Butter Chicken along with the tomato paste but before the garam masala.

January 19, 2017

hi

These burgers look perfectly normal but pack a surprise – an avocado filling. Enjoy them with your favourite salads. Serves 8

Ingredients

1 kg minced beef
2 Tbsp black pepper
2 tsp salt
1 lemon, zest & juice of 1/2 lemon
2 ripe avocados, peeled and pit removed
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, well drained

Method

  1. Preheat BBQ or grill to medium-high. Combine the beef, pepper, 1 tsp salt and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl. Mix well and form into thin patties, all the same size.
  2. In another mixing bowl, combine the avocados, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice and the remaining salt. Mash the avocado and mix the ingredients well until smooth.
  3. Place the avocado mixture onto half of the patties, and top each with another patty. Pinch the edges of your patties together to seal.
  4. BBQ or grill for about 6-8 minutes per side.
  5. Allow the burgers to rest for 10 minutes and then serve with the remaining avocado mixture and a salad.
