Quorn Madras…made the Christine way!


Today David and I both had a day off work. After getting David’s car from the mechanic all bandaged up and fixed (for now!), we headed out to my two favourite shops, Dunelm and B&M. I got a lovely set of egg blue curtains for the bedroom, a change from the teal ones from Dunelm at £30.

Come the afternoon, David worked on his aviary for the finches and I cooked up a mess in the kitchen. The house smells of Indian spices now.

I thought with having a day off, that I should do some more cooking. At least then I know that David is eating a proper meal! He can be so fussy!

So I decided to make a Vegetarian Madras taken from a recipe I saw in an Asda magazine. The recipe was much simpler to the one recipe I have also tried.

The ingredients were as follows. Serves 4 (though I halved everything as it was only for two.)

  • 1 large onion
  • 75g of Asda Madras Curry Paste
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Handful (per person) of Quorn chicken style pieces
  • 390g of Asda Italian chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml of water (reduced if for two people)
  • Rice for the amount of people served.
  • 200g of frozen peas
  • Naan bread (to serve)

Method:

  • I fried the onion and the garlic in some sunflower oil.
  • Once golden added the curry paste and cooked for a couple of minutes.
  • I then added the Quorn chicken style pieces and cooked for 5 minutes
  • Add the water and tomatoes to the pan and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • While the sauce is cooking, put on the rice and cook for 15 minutes
  • After the rice is cooked add the peas
  • Put the naan bread in the oven for 6 minutes.
  • Serve with your favourite beverage and radio station.
  • Share with the important people in your life 🙂

The result was a curry that was not too spicy but warm enough to make the nose run! lol I was amazed that even David enjoyed the meal. He even cleared his plate! 🙂
