Serves: to serve 4

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Ready In: 45 mins

4 tablespoons - corn oil

4 small - chicken breasts

2 - onions

1 - chicken stock cube

1 tablespoon - flour (or cornflour - cornstarch - wheat starch)

1½ cups - cold water

4 level tablespoons - curry powder

6 oz - sultanas

2 cloves - garlic

  - salt and pepper

2 small - apples

10 oz - long grain (Basmati) rice

  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized cubes and peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Place the oil in a frying pan or large saucepan over a medium heat and add the onion. Fry for about 5 minutes, turning regularly, then add the chicken and cook for a further 3 or 4 minutes until the meat is browned on all sides (you can add a little more oil if needed).
  2. Meanwhile, place the flour into a small bowl, dissolve the stock cube in a tablespoon of hot water and pour it slowly into the flour, stirring to make a paste. Add the cold water gradually, stirring to prevent lumps. Pour this into the pan with the chicken and onion, then add the curry powder, sultanas, garlic (peeled and crushed), salt and pepper.
  3. Stir the mixture whilst bringing to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer. Peel and chop the apple and add to the pan after 10 minutes of simmering. Continue to simmer for a further 5 minutes and it's ready to serve!
  4. While the curry is cooking, you can prepare the rice in accordance with the instructions on the packet (usually boiled in salted water for about 15-20 minutes).
