Allyson Gofton's pistachio nut and chicken curry recipe

This Allyson Gofton recipe is mild, sweet and deceptively rich.

Serve with plenty of boiled basmati rice to soak up the thin sauce.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup unsalted pistachio nuts
  • 4 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 10 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled (or 2 tbsp freshly minced garlic)
  • 5cm piece ginger, peeled (or 4-5 tsp freshly minced)
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 kg whole chicken
  • 8 green chillies, halved and deseeded
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ cup thick yoghurt

Garnish:

  • fresh coriander or parsley
  • about ½ cup extra pistachio nuts

Method:

  1. Grind the pistachio nuts to a fine paste in a coffee grinder or food processor. Set aside.
  2. Boil the onions in 2 cups water over a low heat for 15 minutes until tender. Drain and place into a blender with the ginger and garlic, and process until smooth.
  3. Heat 1-2 tbsp oil in a frying pan and cook the onion paste for about 10 minutes over a low heat, stirring regularly until the onion is soft.
  4. While the onion is cooking, use kitchen scissors to cut the chicken (including bone) into 4-5cm size pieces. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and brown the chicken pieces evenly. Set aside.
  5. Add the green chillies, coriander salt and pepper to the onion paste and cook a further minute.
  6. Then add the chicken pieces, ground pistachio nuts and chicken stock. Cover and simmer gently for 20-25 minutes until tender.
  7. Stir in the garam masala, cream and yoghurt just before serving. Serve garnished with coriander and extra pistachio nuts.
