Recipe: Aldi


  • 4 Chicken Breast Fillets, cut into large chunks

  • 150g Cashew Nuts

  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 2 Onions, finely sliced

  • 2 Garlic Cloves, finely sliced

  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

  • ½ tsp Ground Ginger

  • 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes

  • 200g Greek Style Natural Yogurt

  • 500g Basmati Rice

  • 10g Fresh Coriander

  • Salt

  • Lime, cut into segments


Place 100g cashews into a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and soak for 10 minutes.

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan or wok, add the onions, garlic, cinnamon, ginger and curry powder, and fry gently for 2 minutes, stirring regularly.

Add the chicken to the pan and fry until golden.

Add the tinned tomatoes, simmer for 15 minutes.

Drain the soaked cashews, discarding the water, and place into a blender along with the yoghurt. Blend until smooth.

Remove the curry from the heat and stir in the yoghurt and cashew mix. Add salt to taste.
