Chicken and Okra Curry

I have been cooking with the new Knorr Flavour Pots and really enjoying the ease and the taste.

I used the Knorr Curry Flavour Pot for this Chicken and Okra curry dish. It was so successful with the family I have gone on to make it three times, adding different ingredients potatoes to bulk out and combining the other Flavour Pots to create a different taste. The Chill pot gives a real spicy kick if you like your curry hot, but for the first recipe, I just used the curry pot. Its a lovely flavoursome curry taste, quite mild.

One great benefit with the pot as opposed to curry powders is that there is no need to fry as much, powder and spices need to cook to let the flavour out, with the Flavour Pot its already to go.

I had never tried Okra before, it was in the box of ingredients Knorr sent me to try out. We all loved it and have had a few times now. 

I added a little oil to the pan to cook the chicken as I was making a fast dish and did not want it to stick.

The curry method is fast, very easy and is on the table in 20 minutes, unless of course you are a food blogger then it will be photographed first looking for the best light, angle and it will be on the table a while later after several moans to hurry up!!


1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil
450g chicken breast cut into small sized chunks
175g okra ends removed
1 onion sliced
4 fresh tomatoes
1 Knorr Garlic Flavour Pot
1 Knorr Curry Flavour pot
100-150 ml cold water

Heat a little oil in a saute pan or large frying pan that has a lid.
Add the curry and garlic potwith the chicken and mix around on a medium heat until the oil is flavoured and the chicken is sealed.
Add the onion and stir to cover with the flavours about 3 minutes.

Add the okra and stir in. 

Then add the tomatoes do not stir in, just add a lid and this mixture needs to be left on a low heat covered for about 2-3 minutes.

Add a small amount of water, stir and bring to the boil, add the lid and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Check the chicken and if cooked serve.

See the Kale Foogath recipe which makes a nice spicy accompaniment.
