Banana Chicken Curry and Sweet Potato

    1 hour 20 minutes

    Indian dish with a Caribbean twist. The sweetness of the curry and the banana flavour with sweet potato is exotic to say the least, not to mention the aroma of banana.

Using a large heavy based saucepan add a little oil then bring to high heat then add onion and cook for 5 minutes reduce heat slightly then add half spice blend and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes to release their flavour.

    Beautiful sweet curry the banana cuts through but leaves the palate clean and fresh,although i think i add about 2 tablespoons of curry powder I preferred the real kick but it's not for everyone.  -  19 Nov 2015
