'Bhuna' doesn't actually refer to a curry - the word describes the cooking process of spices, where they are fried over a medium heat to reveal their favours. Below is my chicken bhuna recipe that follows this method of cooking. The chicken breast meat is added to the spices and basically cooks in it's own juice.
When you need to find a dish that will feed a large group, spaghetti with meat sauce is definitely an easy one to try. The great thing is that it is fairly inexpensive to make, since you are making a meat sauce that will make your ground beef stretch. You can pick up pre-made sauce and add it to ground beef. Another option is to make your own meat lamb curry ground, starting from scratch and adding your own combination of herbs to the mix. Just make sure you boil plenty of pasta to have on hand to go with the sauce as well. Garlic bread is a great option to go along with this dish and it is easy and quick to make as well.
2 There is no point in roasting 1 chicken. Always roast 2 chickens. This means one dirty pan, one load of washing up - but 2 - 3 meals! If you make 2 Oven Baked Whole Chickens with BBQ Sauce, you can easily turn the second chicken into a number of clever leftover meals: Easy Chicken lamb curry in slow cooker you tube, Chicken Pasta Bake or even a Chicken Pie.
I like to get some rice ready before I get in the shower after the gym. My other food is ready in advance since I am a busy professional. I have to cook my rice fresh. You can always save it but it just isn't the same in my opinion. For a simple curried lamb and rice I like to have some ground turkey already cooked. Then when the rice is ready I just warm up the turkey and throw a ton of it on top of the sticky rice or brown rice. This little meal is quick and nutritious and protein packed.
Avoid slow cooker lamb curry frozen foods in the crockpots. Always defrost them before cooking. Stir in spices during the last hour of cooking. If added earlier with the rest of the ingredients, they will lose flavour due to prolonged cooking time. However, dried herbs will add to the intensity of the flavour such as bay leaves.
You've heard of "five alarm" chili - well, my mom doesn't bother messing around with that. Any kind of chili pepper she can get a hold of goes into her chili. It is not for the faint of heart. It is so tasty, though, that people will power through the pain, and eat it all up anyway.
This was such a pleasurable experience that we asked Abid if there was a possibility that he would start a restaurant in Pasco County, Florida, for us.
